JAN 11 2002COMMANDANT INSTRUCTION M11000.4ASubj: TOWER MANUAL1. PURPOSE. This Manual defines Coast Guard policy and criteria for the preservation of towers and prescribes minimum inspection and maintenance standards for use as a guide in organizing andmanaging a comprehensive tower inspection and maintenance program.2.

The Tower Manual, COMDTINST M11000.4, is cancelled.4. DISCUSSION. The previous edition of the Tower Manual, COMDTINST M11000.4A, was writtenin 1978 with the last changes made in 1982. Although much of the information in the manual wasapplicable to the current tower program, the manual primarily addressed tall guyed towers,specifically OMEGA and LORAN. The Coast Guard's tower inventory is growing annually and haschanged significantly over the past 20 years. The majority of Coast Guard towers today are smalltowers under 300ft that received only cursory attention in the previous edition. Secondly, safetyrequirements and equipment have also improved steadily and the most significant change to thisrevision is in the tower safety chapter. Due to the large volume of new information and requiredchanges, the old Tower Manual, COMDTINST M11000.4, is cancelled in its entirety. The newTower Manual, COMDTINST M11000.4A, has been reorganized and streamlined for quicker andeasier access to information.5. MAJOR CHANGES. Major changes from the previous version of the Manual include: new tower definitions, more detailed requirements for tower safety, establishment of Tall Tower CoordinationCenter, new recommended inspection routines and items, updated tower failure information,incorporated portions of various unit level small tower handbooks, new information on antennainstallation and removal, eliminated dated information relating to OMEGA and ACTEUR towers,new information on tower marking systems in accordance with latest FAA Advisory Circulars, newinformation on alignment and twist methods, updated information on guy tension methods,
