A week or so back, there was a thread concerning MA550 tubular
tower loading and strength, compared with triangular tower.

It appears that I'll have a choice between Rohn 25 and a MA550
tower.  Looking for 65', actually, so it may be an MA770.

The load will be a 3 el Steppir yagi, @ 5.5 sq. ft.  

I can bracket Rohn 25G @ 10 and 25', and hinge the base for 
easy tilt-over.  Same for the tubular.  Question is this:

How high above the house bracket can one safely go with unguyed
25G and the aforementioned load?  

Jim, n2ea
