Maintenance

Our tower crews perform all maintenance repairs from simple to complex. We can install any type of safety system to ensure proper operation and compliance with OSHA standards and EIA/TIA 222 codes. We use state-of-the-art equipment to align and set guy wire tensions to meet specifications. We can also furnish AM Ground Systems and design installations for a single tower, or  large AM arrays. Site grounding from basic installation of ground rods to the more complex Motorola R56 standard can also be installed. Other maintenance services include:

  • Plumb and Tension

We offer complete antenna and line maintenance with capabilities that include replacement and installation of panel antennas, omni directional antennas, standard dishes, high-performance dishes, FM Antennas, Yagis, HDTV antennas, and AM folded unipoles/detuning skirts. Our qualified technicians can install any type of heliax, rigid coax, cable downleads, RG cable, elliptical waveguide line that these antennas require. Line sweeping and testing services are also available.

Our crew will perform periodic re-lamping and inspection services of many different types of lighting systems in accordance with FCC/FAA codes to ensure trouble free operations and avoid costly fines. We also offer installation and maintenance services with 24-48 hour emergency response time in most cases.

Towers must remain in compliance with current FCC and FAA standards and regulations for day marking. All of our manufactured towers are galvanized and receive one top coat of industrial acrylic enamel orange and white paint mixed to comply with current Federal Specifications 595-A when specified. Our crews are also experienced and qualified to handle:

  • Polyurethane
  • Epoxy Mastic
  • Keeler & Long 4404
  • Custom Paint Applications
  • Lead Abatement

Guy wires stretch over time and during adverse weather conditions. We routinely plumb and tension in accordance with EIA/TIA 222.

We can safely repair or replace eroded base piers and modify tower and anchor foundations based on structural analysis by applying good practices. We can replace many different types of damaged, corroded or undersized guy anchor systems and anchor bolts in accordance with EIA/TIA 222 standards.

We also offer a complete line of cathodic protection systems to offer protection from undetected corrosion of guy anchors below grade.
