The last towers were lowered with a crane Dec. 18, 2010. The following are now on the ground available for immediate sale:
5/5 20-meter optimized stacked yagis at 132/65 feet. The upper beam has a 42-foot boom, the lower has a 46 foot boom. The lower is in good condition. The upper suffered slight ice damage when it was on the tower: Half of reflector broke off near boom but is repairable. Couple of elements have slight bend but can be repaired.  Now offered separately: $300 for 42-foot yagi; $350 for 46-foot yagi. Will sell both together for $600.
 
Big beam parts. This is comprised of a 3-inch OD boom that appears to have been originally 36 feet long but broke into two pieces of about 13 and 23 feet. This is the Telex style with reinforced through-boom holes for mounting elements, but has some brackets that were used for surface mounting elements. One set of two elements -- total length together about 1/2 wave on 40 meters -- starts at 1.5 inches diameter and tapers down, with guy support rings out about 2/3 of the way. Several other elements included are smaller size. Also included are two additional 3-inch OD boom pieces of 8 and 8.5 feet long. The longer one is swaged to insert into the other, making a 16-foot boom. Good components for your dream beam. Photos on request. $175 OBO.
 
440-mhz yagi. This was used on the packet link on 446.025 Likely commercial manufacturer but unknown. Elements are about 1/4 or 3/8 inch diameter and through-boom design. Boom had extended beyond reflector for mounting to tower but the ice storm snapped it behind the reflector. Elements all in good shape. $10.
 
10-foot galvanized steel mast. 1 7/8" OD and 1/8 inch wall, with a hole near the base for pinning the rotor (it was a G-2800), another for pinning the beam (a monster 5-el. 20m yagi on 46-foot boom!), and another for a bolt-through near the top. Photos on request. $50
 
Assorted aluminum antennas and parts.
 
Bundle of miscellaneous aluminum tubing from 1/4" to 1" sizes. Will be sold as a bundle only. Great for antenna projects. Photo on request. $30
 
Assorted parts for 70-ft. Glen Martin Hazer tower. Pieces only, not a complete tower. Includes several of the vertical angle pieces and track for Hazer and bolts. Photo and more details on request. $35
