I have the older Wilson Rotating tubular type tower.
I used a thrust bearing on the mast which extends out of the Wilson tower,
with a length of square tube bolted to the bearing's mounting plate.
The tube serves as a yardarm supporting a inverted vee.
The tower has it's rotator mounted at the bottom and can rotate while the
inverted vee remains in it's position.
