is this planned obsolesence (did I spell that right)|
The weakest length when torque hits the mast is the one that will give...if you pin at the rotor I guess you had better hope the boom to mast connection slips under high winds otherwise you'll get a bucket of gears and bolts for a rotor!

OK, so my elbow-poking comes back into my own ribs... ow! Instead of kidding around, I should have taken the time to read further in the manual for the Yaesu G-800DXA rotator I'm in the process of installing. In the illustration on page 11, it very clearly shows a long 9mm bolt (supplied) going through the mast clamps AND through the mast. Oh, well, live and learn. :-) Jerry K3BZ
