Abstract: This paper presents the construction of a tower of spectra $ {Y_j}$ with $ k$-invariants coming from the relations $ {\text{S}}{{\text{q}}^1}(X{\text{S}}{{\text{q}}^{{2^{j + 1}}}}){\text{S}}{{\text{q}}^1}(X{\text{S}}{{\text{q}}^{{2^j}}}) = 0$ in $ A / A{\text{S}}{{\text{q}}^1}$, for $ 0 \leqslant j \leqslant 5$ and $ A$ = Steenrod algebra $ \mod 2$, such that $ {Y_5}$ has prescribed homotopy groups: $ {\pi _n}({Y_5}) = Z$ (integers) if $ n = {2^{j + 1}} - 2$, and zero otherwise.
