Perhaps I wasn't clear: a 50' AN Wireless Light Duty tower *will* handle
the SteppIR in a 100mph wind. To put the antenna that extra 10' higher
would necessitate going for the Heavy Duty model costing much more.|
BTW, since people have referred specifically to Trylon towers, you may be interested to see the engineer's report comparing the AN Wireless and the Trylon:
(Of course, the AN Wireless towers are not crank-up, so one might still prefer the Trylon.)

If you have ever had a tower come crashing down, you would know that it is much better to do the "right" thing up front than have a big mess sitting in your back yard.
_______________________________________________I just came from looking at the specs for the AN Wireless self-supporting towers (www.anwireless.com). I had been thinking of a 60' tower to support my 3-el SteppIR (by no means large: less than 7 sq. ft.), but I found that the max. surface area one of their 60' Light Duty models will support with 90mph winds is less than 1 sq. ft.!
