Not sure where I downloaded this but posting here for those than might want a little Chemistry 101, 1960’s style.

Note: a lot has changed in the ~60 years since the this book was published, proceed at your own risk. Posted for HISTORIC purposes only.

Glenn Martin MT-1845 Tower Documentation

Posted in Infrastructure, Manuals, RF on April 3, 2013 by brandon314

I had a difficult time finding this documentation so I’ll post it here for anyone whom may need it in the future.


This is for a Glen-Martin (G-M) MT-1845 50ft crank-up ground-mount tower. This is the same tower found on their TT-1845 (trailer mounted 50ft tilt over tower), but with a base plate for direct ground mounting.

PDF Document for Base Plate/Concrete Requirements: Chb13-18

PDF Document for Tower Specification Drawings: MT-1845

Here is a quick link to a public documents released by Detroit Diesel. It took me awhile to find so hopefully this makes it a little easier for others.

Webasto AT200ST Service Manual (LIT9010439B)



Interesting note on this heater:

Recently ran some bad fuel through mine and unfortunately found out that the fuel metering pump does NOT like ‘thick’ fuel or algae running through it. These are often heater-specific fuel metering pumps and sealed units.  Acquired a replacement on e-bay and upon installing it found that the heater was throwing a glow pin fault code. Ran the diagnostics to find that the glow pin resistance was appearing ‘too low’ to the heater (even though it still turned glowing hot) so it would shut down.


I first found that there was a direct short showing between ground and the glow-pin source (through a FET to +12v). After analyzing the control module, I found a reverse protection diode had failed to short (probably the product of me trying to investigate the glow-pin operation and shorted/powered something). I replaced this with the reverse protection diode for the fuel metering pump and used a misc. SMD diode that I had on-hand to replace the failed one for the metering pump (a much less sensitively measured device). Now that the controller wasn’t seeing a short, I merely had to be concerned with the high (.6-.9ohm) resistance of the glow pin upsetting the controller. Book specifies somewhere around .4ohm.

I added two 21W light bulbs (an increased 2.4A load @ 12V…about 29W) and found that it didn’t complain about the resistance. I figure this fix will only last so long as the glow pin apparently is showing sings of giving up the ghost. Not very impressive for a heater that has less than 100hrs on it. The proper ‘fix’ if the glow pin is actually good (fault with the heater’s measurement circuit) would be to install a couple 15-20W 20ohm resistors in parallel to shed the load in a non-illuminating way.
