> How many of you have experienced 10 years without a failure?
IMO that's a basic tower/antenna construction goal.
> How many of you would be satisfied with the same antenna for 10 years?
I've had the same antennas up for almost 20 years.
> My experience is much different. Rotors fail frequently.
Well, you're right. I didn't make the comment about the rotators since
they rarely makite for ten years. My experience has been 6-7 years typically.
But if all you have to do is a rotator swap in ten years, that's not a bad
