The (SARC) Superstition Amateur Radio Club of Mesa, AZ needed to replace their UHF/VHF repeater antenna and repair the hard feed line which had a large dent in it from years back. This video shows the club taking down the tower, replacing the antenna and fixing the hard line.
One member volunteered to climb the tower to connect the strap and tow cable. This tower’s base is on a hinge so to bring it down you only need to remove some large bolts.
A local towing company volunteered their crane truck and a driver for a couple of hours. Thanks Apache Sands towing it was greatly appreciated. Some more volunteer members pulled on a counter rope and the tower is on its way down at the command of the tow truck operator.
The tower is lying down nicely on some old tires.
