US Towers ALM-31 Reviews: 1 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $1699.95
Description: The Aluminum Light Mast (ALM) was specifically designed
for the Ham and competitive Ham operators. Constructed
using US Tower’s patented Falcon Mast Extrusion, the ALM
optimized the strength to weight ratio making it the ideal
choice for home use or field-day use. The ALM can be used
as a temporary tower which may allow installation to occur
without the need for a permit (always ensure that you are
adhering to all local, state and federal ordinances when
installing and operating the ALM). Quick, reliable,
corrosion-resistant and light, the ALM provides Ham
operators of all types with a temporary or permanent
solution that ensures their signal will be heard.
Product is in production.

High Quality Tower / Mast  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I wanted a semi-portable tower solution that I will use at my QTH for a few years, and then when I move I want to easily take it with me. This tower / crank up mast fills the bill.

It is a very high quality product - I ordered it from HRO and received it within the quoted time frame. Two people can easily carry it - and I was able to pick one end up and get it into position at my installation site by myself (its 110 pounds). The winch is excellent - its easy up and down - and it has an automatic braking mechanism which works well.

Its a stout unit - beefier than I had expected, and was crated well and came via UPS LTL Freight.

I have a SteppIR UrbanBeam on it and love it - even though its a bit low for a 40M antenna. The rotator plate at the top is perfect for my Yaesu G450 rotator and the tower is perfect for the UrbanBeam.
