I have a HDBX 48 and in fact have a spare... They are a lot str=onger than
you think. Mine has a Mosley PRO-57 with a 220 repeater ant above it, above
the tower some 20'. This thing has seen 70 mph winds and vibrates but is
rock solid. There are gin ploles for the HDBX seris. They come apart east
usually. A little penetrating oil does the trick. As far as paying to take
it down! Ouch!!
probably would cost more than it's worth.
