The following message comes from our friend Jim Marr AA6QI:
The family of a recently-deceased ham in eastern Altadena needs to have his tower removed by the end of October. If nobody wants the tower, it will likely end up as scrap metal.
The tower is a Telex/Hy-Gain HG-54HD three-section, crank-up, tilt-over 54 ft tower (21 ft nested). This is a heavy duty tower that supports 16 sq ft of antenna at 60 mph winds fully extended.
The in-ground base is still available from HRO or DX Engineering.
I believe that I have another ham who is willing to help take the tower down and transport it locally.
There are also two CDE Ham-2 rotators and controllers that are in a box (not on the tower).
There are also a number of antennas lying on the ground and lying on the roof of the house, antennas that I don’t recognize, that are also destined for the scrap dealer unless someone wants to rescue them.
