Concrete just beyond halfway point for minimum cure. I set the top thrust mount plate on the exposed top brackets to check level.

Here is the antenna that will be mounted on my tower next year after the concrete cures.

Completed tower base. 10’ (3.05 m) tower section buried in 9.5’ (2.9 m) deep hole and filled with 2.6 cu yds (2 m^3) of concrete. I now need to summon the patience to wait a month for concrete to cure. 73

Why it’s a 10’ (3.05 m) long solid rod tower seed that with sunshine, rain, and love will grow into a 50’ (15.24 m) fold-over tower in the spring!
