Vehicle Mounted Towers
This vehicle mounted antenna mast is designed to be installed by the customer on a van, cargo trailer, motor home, or other suitable vehicle. Telescoping guyed antenna mast towers are available up to 100 feet (30.5m). The towers are transported in a horizontal position. At the site, they are easily tilted to their vertical position, then erected to desired height. Carriage and tower are rolled to the rear of vehicle. The tower is then pivoted to the vertical position.
The unique feature of this vehicle mounted antenna mast is the sliding track design that allows the tower to be centered front to rear over the vehicle. It allows the operator to move the tower from the horizontal to the vertical position with a minimum amount of effort. The telescoping masts are equipped with roller guides to ensure smooth operation. The roller guides cushion each section from the fully retracted position to the fully extended position.
On vans and trucks the track should be mounted on a ladder rack. These are available at truck equipment dealers. On other types of vehicles, the track and carriage assembly may be secured directly to the vehicle’s roof.
