Greetings, TowerTalkians --

    This is off-topic but is something that will benefit anyone involved in 
tower/antenna systems. 

    As some of you know, I have a company, Champion Radio Products 
( <A HREF="";></A> ) that 
sells towers and products used in tower construction; i.e. safety equipment, 
rigging gear, etc. I'm adding carbon alloy steel and 4130 chromoly masts to 
my products. 

    I sell a nifty little program called MARC (Mast, Antenna and Rotator 
Calculator) that primarily calculates bending moments of loads on masts. You 
put in the antenna loads and spacing along with the windspeed spec and MARC 
will tell you what the bending moment is and what material dimensions and 
yield strength that will handle that situation. The calculations are based on 
Dave Leeson's, W6NL, chapter from his "Physical Design of Yagi Antennas" 
book. MARC is a compiled program so it's not possible to just put it on the 
website (at least that's what I've been told).  

    I want to have this function on the website so that everyone can use it 
to plan and purchase the right mast. Is there someone out there who can do 
this for me? Is this a java ap or what? I will be happy to pay someone to 
come up with this and include a FREE lifetime subscription to TowerTalk as 
well - hi.  Tnx!
