Abstract:

The report describes the results of an evaluation of a guy stake that was developed to satisfy the antenna anchoring requirements of communication systems in various soil types. Characteristics of this Multipurpose Guy Stake such as ease of insertion, extraction, holding power, and durability were compared with 6 ground anchors now in common use for antenna anchoring. It was concluded that the test item was significantly superior to the other stakes tested and a recommendation was made to adopt the Multipurpose Guy Stake for use with the Radio Set ANTRC-97, and to consider it for use in other ground anchoring applications.
