Ham Radio & Fixed Towers, TX Series
US Tower’s freestanding TX Series crank-up towers are as strong or stronger than most competitors’ heavy-duty models. The TX Series towers have 21 foot sections with 4 foot overlap to provide extra height and strength. In addition, the overlap helps prevent binding while lowering your tower in high wind conditions.
The TX Series towers have a large enough top section (12½”) to permit installation of most rotors inside the section for maximum strength while allowing the section to fully retract. Cross-bracing at critical points on the tower ensure safety and additional strength. All US Tower crank-up towers have a heavy-duty hot dipped galvanized finish both inside and out, which should provide many years of trouble-free service.
All T-bases will accept the TRX Series raising fixtures for easy one-man installation. All TX Series towers include Fulton hand winches (except MDP and MDLP models) which feature automatic load actuated brakes for maximum safety. Masts and motor drives are available as accessories (see accessory page).
The TX-472MDP comes complete with MDP-750 motor drive with positive pulldown feature. The TX-489MDPL includes the MDPL-1000 motor drive and level wind feature. Limit switch assemblies and remote raising devices are available (MCL-100) (RMC-1000) for all MDP-750 and MDPL-1000 motor drive units (see accessory page for description).
US Tower’s TX Series requires no guying. The wind loading is calculated at 90 mph winds per TIA/EIA specifications. To assist you in applying for necessary construction permits, IBC 2006 calculations are available for most models.
