replying to the previous question, I forgot. The rotor is a HAM V (Tailtwister) 
at the base of the tower.  I think that is more than adequate for the job, am I 
mistaken? wrote: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?
