Curious how you arrived at a 25lb wind load. I'll clarify the situation,
MA-550 55' (base):
Steppir 6 sqr ft 10' + base
D40 Dipole 1 sqr ft 20' + base
Verticle+Mast 1 sqr ft
does this still come up to 25lb? I think a tribander beam is pretty
customarily between 5- 7 sqr feet of wind load, depending on the shape of
traps, poles etc. The dipole is pretty low wind area.
I am confused. The rotor and mast are a 25 pound wind load?
That seems like a lot -- it is more than a big antenna. How can that be? I
would have thought the mast and rotor would be minimal wind load. I am
planning one of these for myself. What am I missing?
