Supporting Solar-Powered Antenna for National Park Service
U.S. National Park Service was in need of an AFS 1300 to support solar powered communication antennas to the park.
ARE Telecom provided the U.S. National Park Service to mobilize and install our AFS 1300 ballasted foundation system with an 80’ tilt-up monopole and hydraulic raising system to support a solar powered communication antenna to the park.
ARE’s AFS 1300 ballasted foundation system is a versatile system designed to provide ease of portability and installation while providing a solid base for monopoles up to 80’. Our hydraulic pole raising system allows the pole to be lifted and lowered without a crane. This results in significantly easier maintenance.
