This is a light-duty triangular two-section tower made by Tristao. It cranks up to about 37 feet and is a bit over 20 feet when nested. The sections look straight but are rusty from exposure; it needs a good scraping and painting to bring it back to life. The Tristao name plate is in place but I couldn't read the model number at the time. It is mounted to a base plate that is bolted into concrete, and there appears to be plenty of room to lower the tower without interference. The tower is also attached to the house at the roofline Tower has a winch and pivoting base plate.
The rotator is a Channel Master TV rotator with control box, which should be good for a VHF beam or a compact HF antenna.
The vertical antenna at the top of the tower appears to be a Ringo Ranger - most likely the two meter model.
This Two-meter beam appears to be a 7 element Cushcraft model. Since it is still on the tower the condition is unknown. It looks whole in the photo.
