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.

for placing plates under a thrust bearing and rotor in the top and middle of
the top section.

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.
