Added a AT-197/GR discone to the tower this afternoon. Here are a couple bad quality photos from my phone. Will be posting some high quality photos of the new shack and tower setup soon.

Tower

What a super looking tower arrangement!! Sure wish I had the luxury (HOA won't allow it) of having a tower like this. Great job - enjoy the super listening you must enjoy as a result of this tower.

It is fence post from home depot. The mount is not complete, I am having to add another cross brace back to the tower. It is very instable in its current state. I will post photos of the completed mount. The discone that is mounted there is very heavy, I will try to get good close up and higher res photos posted this weekend.

LOL, yeah. its down in the aluminum recycling bin if you want it.....
ROFL! Exactly where it belongs! :lol:

But seriously, can you give us some observations on the performance difference between the Scantenna and the discone? If that discone is significantly out performing the Scantenna from like twenty feet lower on the tower, that's something we need to hear!

Who makes that discone?
