Hi Guys,

I'm planning to mount a TR-44 rotor on top of three (9-ft) sections of push
up South River mast, the lowest section will be attached to the house above
the garage and the upper two sections, 3-point guyed to the roof. 

QUESTION-#1: Would it be recommended to mount a vertically polarized
11-element 2-meter beam about 3 or 4-ft above the rotor AND the R-5 vertical
above the beam on the same upper mast pipe?

QUESTION-#2: If this is a feasable [safe] mounting set-up, what would the
recommended spacing be between the bottom of the R-5 and the upper ends of
the beam elements- for minimal interaction?

QUESTION-#3: Are there any special precautions or recommendations I should
take with this mounting arrangement?

I can't begin to tell you all how valuable this reflector has been to me
these last few weeks that I've been a member. I've learned stuff I would
never had read anywhere else. Keep up the good work and the knowledge flowin'.
