OK, I know this has been talked about ad nauseum on this reflector.  But, I
have to get my act together so I can get the tower crew in here in July.

I am putting up a TH6 on 60 foot of Rohn 25G.  Pointy-Top which will
accomodate a 2" mast.  I have some brass shims too for the rotor already made.

I want to also put up a 40 meter dipole like a KLM or Force 12 above the
TH6.  I am also want to put up a small two meter beam for SSB/CW tropo work
from EM18.  I was going to put up a 6 meter beam, but I can do that on the
short tower of 40 feet.

Do I use drawn or extruded aluminmum?  

2" at .250 wall thickness is available from Texas Towers.  Is there
something better somewhere?  Where do you by chrome molley tubing?  Anyone
go some sweet advice?
