Hi, all concerned:

Has anyone attached tell-tales to antenna elements and watched to see how
differently or uniformly they (the tell-tales) react to wind?   Ditto guys
and tower legs.  (Ever watch  all those little flags at a used-car lot?)

Has anyone instrumented guys with strain gauges, to see what happens in the
wind?   Ditto tower legs and antenna elements.

Has anyone applied a measured pull (or push), equal to the antenna mfr's
stated wind load, to the top of his self-supporting tower, noted the
deflection from vertical, and compared it to wind-induced movement?
