The purpose of this study is to analyze the wind load on the Repeater Radio Frequency (RRF) antenna tower, the wind load is viewed from an angle of 0° to the towing cable to the largest angle on the two types of antenna towers, triangle and rectangular. Both types will produce different wind loads so that we can find out which load is the biggest from a combination of wind directions. The research method is by empirical analysis, calculating the wind load alone while other loads are not counted. As a result of wind loads, the tension cable and load direction correspond to each section and then the resultant values of force and direction will arise. And finally, the force is changed to lift and the anchor will hold the force. The results; The use of triangle antenna towers is more beneficial, especially the wind load that occurs is smaller, thus the construction costs are also smaller. The lifting power of a triangle antenna anchor tower is lighter around 1393.971N or 1.393971kN   than that of a square antenna anchor tower lift of around 1971.373N or 1.971373kN.
