Rooftop Ballasted Mounts
Remote Mountain Top Antenna Solution for Mastec/AT&T
Mastec/AT&T was in need of a pole on an isolated mountain top in Capitan, NM.
Mastec/AT&T was in need of a 85’ pole on an isolated mountain top in Capitan, NM. The 15 mile unmaintained dirt road to the site made the installation a challenge. ARE Telecom was contracted to install our AFS 1700 ballasted foundation system with an 85’ self-raising monopole to support AT&T communication antennas.
ARE Telecom’s AFS 1700 ballasted foundation system is designed to fit in a container and was brought to the mountain top by truck and trailer. ARE’s Hydraulic System raised made it possible to raise the pole without the use of a crane.
