My 64' T600 Trylon has the rotor plate about 3 feet below the thrust
per Trylon. Use an appropriate mast, and antennas that don't overload
anything, and I don't see where you'd go wrong.

Subject: [TowerTalk] T500 bearing and rotor placement
> I'm new to the group and look forward to hearing other opinions on tower
> I have a Trylon T500 up. It came with angle brackets in the top section
for placing plates under a thrust bearing and rotor in the top and middle of
the top section.
> Would it be better to lower the rotor down into the next section below,or
is it ok in that top section?
> I would also like an opinion on the antenna height above the thrust
bearing. Will raising it to 3 ft or more above the bearing have any effect
on how low i should nest the rotor? The antenna is going to be a 4 element
SteppIR,about 10 sq ft. Would like to have a log peridioc for the higher
bands above the SteppIR,but am not committed to that.
> Any ideas would be most appreciated.
