Thanks I think the last photo link may be better not sure. The old line truck has a drill for setting poles, a winch 3 stage boom and bucket. I gave 500 dollars for it from a company I did contract work for years ago. Right place at right time, they needed it off the property took me about an hour to get it running then drove it home.

Did you set them up to Share?
Tried a couple hosting sites and the photos are apparently to large to upload here. Let me know if these work. Thanks Tony

Any way these seem to work for me.

That works; thank you for the photos.

I had a problem with Photobucket. They suddenly and without warning stopped showing my images in posts. Then they wanted me to pay them so the images would again show in posts, which they call third party. That didn't sit too well with me; it was like they were holding my images hostage.

Image size can be critical. A large file will show good detail, but it takes up more storage space. There are limitations on the size of attachments. If I show an image in a post I try to keep the width not greater than 750 pixels.

They work fine, Tony; nice photos.

Good job on the tower.



Just to see if I could do it, I transformed the perspective to compensate for the camera tilt. I hope you don't mind.

Thanks Rabbit73, I don't mind at all. Still got a couple things to finish this weekend when the rain stops. It did well in the high winds we had for two days. It is attached to the house and of course the base I still have guy lines to attach near the top and will add a preamp while I am up there.

Update.....

Installed High Gain signal Amplifier from wwwnipponamerica.com.
It came with outdoor antenna mount pre-amplifier and adjustable gain indoor distribution amplifier.

After checking reviews I ordered off fleabay $38.00 shipped.
No affiliation what so ever. They have a web site and a brick and mortar location in Florida.

Initial results: I went from 24 to 28 channels depending on weather and antenna positioning to 48 channels digital and one analog all coming in strong with no re-positioning. That is with gain set on lowest setting. Channels range from 2.1 to 69.5.

Conclusion: Very Happy!!!
The unit I purchased seems well made as for longevity and durability we shall see and I will update.

Thanks rabbit73 and groundyourmast for your advice and help and to TV Fool giving a home for great information.

Cheers, Tony
