Standard questions: What's your county windspeed rating (available from
<A HREF="http://www.championradio.com">www.championradio.com</A> under Tech
Notes)? What configuration and spacing are you proposing?
6061-T6 aluminum only has a yield strength of 35,000 psi which is only
suitable for limited mast applications of which yours might be one.
