The purpose of this PAN is to educate industry professionals on best practices for designing, installing, and maintaining microwave antenna mounting systems. A successful installation requires careful consideration of multiple components, including the mount, struts, support structure, and cabling. Engineers must also consider azimuth and climbing facilities when determining placement of the antenna and its mounting system. See below for additional topics touched on:
• Structure, Safety, & System
• Mounting system-supporting structure attachment points
• Antenna mount orientation and strut position
• Structure’s lighting, markings, and climbing facilities
