The Model T-3002 tower and rotator system is the ultimate support for large HF log periodic antennas. The T-3002 is specifically designed to support the USAP antennas Models, LP-1001, LP-1002 or the 3 to 30 MHz, LP-1005.
The DUAL TOWER guyed system consists of two 80 foot steel knockdown support towers, a base rotator supported on pivotal yokes between the towers. This system can be tilted down for ground level maintenance of the antenna. A SELF SUPPORT tower is available. This option eliminates the guy wires, but precludes the option of lowering the antenna without a crane. Both systems have a 100 (or 80) foot rotating mast with a 1-5/8 inch pressurized feedline installed inside, a 25 kW rotary joint and all accessories and hardware needed for installation. The rotator used is the heavy duty Model R-3503, equipped with the DRC-3, two-wire control unit. The rotating mast and ground level rotator design places the vertical load of the antenna at the base of the tower rather than at the top. This provides increased system stability and greater wind load survivability. Rotator maintenance can be performed without climbing the tower.
