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.
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.
