Well, guys there is some validity of the concern about a 
side mounted antenna or other, causing undo stresses on 
a tower.  Wasn't there an article in last month's QST 
that talked about how most installations are not good 
and if the stresses are calculated, most towers could 
collapse?  Little 2M beams may be one thing but larger 
HF antennas may be a future problem, regardless of the 
number of legs attached.  Look around for that article 
and consult with its author and/or your own local 
structural engineer.  Phil  KB9CRY
