Tower Inspections

Norman Tower Service has 40 years' experience up close with towers of all sizes and designs. There are a lot of places to look for possible tower problems, from the beacon lightning rod to the underground part of the guy anchor. Your tower is a big investment. You need dependability because the loss or serious damage to your tower shuts down your communications. A regular scheduled inspection visit from Norman Tower Service can help you catch problems before they make headlines.

Norman Tower Service inspects everything on the tower: tight bolts, secure coax support, condition of antennas, brackets, and side-mounts, coaxial cable and connectors, guy wire attachments, and wiring for obstruction lighting.

Norman Tower Service knows guy anchors are out of sight. The best galvanizing doesn't last very long in wet soil. Just a few feet away from the anchor rod is the copper ground rod connected to the lower end of the guy wires. The copper ions travel through the wet soil and react with the steel, eating it away. This corrosion problem is even worse at AM radio stations due to the copper ground radials buried around the tower.
