And K7NV would be disappointed if I didn't also caution to be careful that 
the antenna wind area figures you use are calculated on the same basis as 
the numbers that Trylon uses to rate its towers.  Combining apples and 
oranges can result in trying to put as much as 1.5 times the rated amount 
of antenna area on the tower.
