I'm thinking of replacing my existing short roof quadpod with a taller 
one to raise my C-3SS higher off my roof in order to (hopefully) cure 
some interaction issues.

I have two routes to go: a Glenn Martin or Create (if I can find one) 
9-10 footer that won't need guys, or a Rohn 25 flat-top section (8 ft) 
that would require guying.   The cost of the Rohn plus parts (rotor 
shelf, peak roof mount and guy materials) is approx half of the 

Any suggestions or comments re: the technical merits of the opposing 

Of course, one can't judge the costs imposed by the "Aesthetics 
Committee" when it sees guy wires on the roof, but I'm not going there 
quite yet!

Thanks in advance.
