Ham Radio & Fixed Towers, HDX Series
US Tower’s HDX Series heavy-duty crank-up towers have up to 2½ times more wind-loading capacity than others commonly advertised. This superior strength allows for large stacked arrays, while using our commercial type bases and anchor bolts that can be easily installed and vertically adjusted. All HDX Series T-bases are designed to use our TRX Series raising fixtures which make installations and antenna servicing a one-man job.
US Tower carries as accessories many different sizes and strengths of masts which can be used with the HDX Series towers. The HDX-572MDPL and 589MDPL motorized towers provide dual level wind, positive pull down and heavy-duty gear box features. The HDX-589MDPL comes complete with the MCL-100 limit switch package included. All towers using MDP-750 and MDPL-1000 motor drives may use the RMC-1000 accessory limit switch package which allows the raising and lowering of your tower from the comfort of your ham shack or any remote location. MCL-100 is also available (see accessory page).
US Tower’s special T-base design allows the tower to hinge for easy installation. US Tower’s crank towers require no guying. The HDX Series towers are rated at 90 mph winds per TIA/EIA specifications. To assist you in getting a construction permit, IBC 2006 calculations are available for most towers.
