In 2019 I bought myself a Versatower.
This mast was mounted on a concrete Stelcon plate and for the time being I
placed it in my garden in front of my house.
It was heavy enough for mounting a 144 MHz yagi
I wanted to move the Versatower to the garden behind my house and use the
Stelcon plate for the EME antenna.
In 2020 I started digging a hole in my backyard, dimensions 2x2 mtr and 1 mtr
In spring of 2021 I continued work on this and by end of april 2021 it was ready
to pour in the concrete.
For the mounting of the tower I planned use of the M24 1 meter long threaded
I mounted these as exact as I could manage onto a wooden construction.
Later I found that using these would leave me only a few millimeter for error to
fit on the Versatower mount
I found a company prepared to drive with a full cargo load of concrete over the
meadow direct next to my garden.
During the pouring of the concrete we noticed that the threaded ends bended by
the force of pouring the concrete
During the process of pouring, we several times readjusted the threaded ends to
vertical using a long wooden stick
In total 4,2 cubic meters of concrete was used for filling up
After removing the wooden construction I noticed that one of
the threaded ends was a bit crooked
This worried me as it could be a problem to mount the versatower mount over
these threaded ends
I tried to force the M24 threaded end back to to correct position but it seemed
The threaded end on the front right is a bit crooked.
A neighbour helped with the transport from my Versatower to my backyard
When the mount arrived at the concrete we adjusted it over the
and with a strong mechanical arm I adjusted the position to fit over the
It fitted quite easily and by adding the bolts it was simple to adjust the
Versatower mount into it's wanted and final position
My neighbour then helped me with the tower transport which was
easily mounted on top of the mount.
