      Hi David - a warm welcome to the Mechanical Design Forum. What's your background? What sort of projects are you working on right now?

      Cheers,
      Gareth

      Great. I work on the microwave radio modules & antennas that bolt on to just these kind of towers! Do you do much work calculating wind loading etc?

      That's it, monopoles,lattice,hydro masts,etc...yes we do quite a lot of calcs really but wind calcs are the most..A little bit of foundation detailing as well..recently i was introduced to TowerSoft and its a great software and i'm sure you must have heard of it or you know about it..
