W9IIX.COM     INFO             1/1/2018


    To all my friends in the amateur radio fraternity, the time has come to slow down in life and enjoy the leisure time associated with old age ( 75 ) , radio, naps

 and more radio...   Its been a hell of a run for 35 years helping out hams with

 their problems in all areas of antenna and tower construction and repair from

all over the world.

.     IIX Equipment ltd. has closed up shop officially on 1/1/2018, but I can still

 accommodate requests as time permits. I can only accept checks and Paypal as

payment for parts and services fabricated on my time schedule. Ham radio has

been a great lifelong hobby for me with many never to be forgotten exciting

moments on the air with the world on all bands and modes. I hope i make it

thru the present cycle to enjoy the top again. Listed below is what I can still

make with reasonable delivery times.





This is a collection of tower equipment I have been making for the past 35 years to fill the need of the amateur radio community. Some of it was a copy of  tools already in use for a long time, but others were invented to fill a need for other types of towers  that appeared through the years. I have made a number of special items for the hams also, but the gin poles have been the mainstay tool to do tower work. Along with these tools the people doing the work must have a mind set that safety is the up most thought in their mind. Many factors can make tower work dangerous and every step should be thought about in detail along with every possible problem that could take place.
