ICE BRIDGE
CABLE SUPPORT STRUCTURE

Radio Tower Company designed and built this ice bridge at a Portland tower site. The ice bridge creates a path for cables between two 1,000' towers and the adjacent buildings. Challenges included interfacing with the existing tower foundations, meeting the needs of a variety of tower users and mechanical and aesthetic fit with existing site structures.

TOWER TOP MAST
WITH FM ANTENNA

Radio Tower Company installed this 22' mast and FM antenna on top of a Portland broadcast tower. The primary challenge was that a jin pole could not be used on this tower due to an existing spiral antenna. We designed a fixture which allowed the mast to be pushed up into position from below, and completed a project which many considered impossible.

UNIPOLE ANTENNA
WITH 20' STANDOFF PIPES

Radio Tower Company designed and installed this large unipole antenna on a Portland broadcast tower. Working primarily in the winter months added to the challenges of installing the long and heavy standoff pipes. The pipes are supported with Phillystran non-conductive guy wires.

FM ANTENNA
WITH 10' STANDOFF BRACKET

Radio Tower Company designed and installed this custom 10' standoff bracket at a tower site south of Salem. The client needed a durable and economical means of improving the performance of the FM antenna by distancing it from the tower's steel structure. Careful planning and fabrication at our shop allowed us to complete the installation quickly at this remote site.
