Discussion group for hams interested in the convenience and safety of ham radio antenna towers that can be maintained from the ground. Includes tiltover and crankup towers, accessories, antenna application notes, installation and maintenance. 

For Sale and "want to buy" postings are welcome. Please ask for direct replies "off the reflector." Tower and accessory vendor representatives are welcome to join and post photos, links, and files for their products and services. 

Caveat: Owners, Al / NN4ZZ and Jon / W4ABC don't have a financial interest in any of the tower vendors.  Guenther / VE3CVS does provide safety and convenience accessories for tiltover towers at his company Degen Designs that were previously NN4ZZ products.
