Hi, Hugh --
The Mosley antennas are very sensitive to antennas in direct proximity
so I wouldn't mount ANYTHING around it (2M antennas, HF slopers, etc.).
The Achilles heel of the Yaesu rotators is their clam-shell mast clamp.
It is made out of cast aluminum and you can break it very easily during
installation. Follow the instructions exactly and you'll probably stay out
Other than that and installing the tower per specs, have fun.
BTW, you may want to check into Towertalk, the tower and antenna
construction reflector. It has many knowledgeable people on it and is a
terrific source of information for tower and antenna questions. Send a
