I have a Cushcraft 402-CD right at the top of the tower and a KT34XA 12
feet above it on a 4130 moly mast. I put the 40 meter beam at the bottom
because it is more likely to need service and to keep element droop away
from the tribander.
I rotate the whole thing with a Ham IV. The weakest link is probably the
brake and that would be the first to break. I would feel more secure with
a Tailtwister but I'm swimming in Ham IVs.
