Gallery: Rohn HBX-48 Tower Project

The HBX-48 Tower Project begins with the purchase of a used, solid but somewhat rusty HBX-48 tower from Roger, WB9BXT in February 2019 for a very reasonable $275.  Roger had purchased it a while back from a ham in northern Kentucky, but ultimately decided to stay with his pushup pole arrangement.  He stored the tower safely in his barn until a new home was found. 

After hauling it to Indiana in my trailer, I took it to Maye's Powdercoating & Sandblasting in Whiteland, Indiana.  Larry sandblasted it and powdercoated it a comely ANSI Gray.
