What you need to do if determine the Effective Moment (EM) of each
antenna and match it up against the EM figure in the Hy-Gain catalog.
Effective Moment is the turning radius times the weight. For example, the
20-4CD is 23.75 X 55 = 1306 ft.lbs. of EM; the rating of the Ham IV is 2800
BTW, the MARC (Mast, Antenna and Rotator Calculator) Program calculates
the EM and recommends an appropriate rotator.
