Thanks for all the responses from all at towertalk

The general concensus is that the project is dead due to the interaction
of two yagis without enough spacing. 

I would especially like to thank Tom N6BT - Force 12 West and Natan
W6XR/2 - Force 12 East for their multiple and rapid responses to my
original post.  As I originally posted, I own a C4XL/d now and it works
great! Like most Hams, I wanted more! These guys and their support are
only one of the reasons I wanted to have another Force 12.

Along with many other responces (and thanks again), Nathan's pretty well
sums up my problem.  I can't vision any feasible way to get 27' to 35'
of spacing needed from a 50' tower.  I guess I'll just have to wait
another 35 years for another great tower deal to come along.

This is Natan's last post to me:

COULD NOT BE OF MORE HELP???????  Your help is worth the +$2000 I would
have spent on my hair-brained idea that would not have worked!
