KLM 5 element, 15 meter beam, 35 ft boom. > 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 ft.lbs. BTW, the MARC (Mast, Antenna and Rotator Calculator) Program calculates the EM and recommends an appropriate rotator. 73, Steve K7LXC TOWER TECH -- professional tower supplies for amateurs -- FAQ on WWW: http://www.contesting.com/towertalkfaq.html Submissions: towertalk@contesting.com Administrative requests: towertalk-REQUEST@contesting.com Problems: owner-towertalk@contesting.com Search: http://www.contesting.com/km9p/search.htm ```
