Hi, Tod and TTers;|
Tod presents 'an elegant solution." Furthermore, by optimizing the length and diameter of the arm versus area of the vane, one can minimize the wind loading on the tower and mast.
I recall that this aspect of antenna design and the calculations are addressed in David Leeson's book, "Physical Design of Yagi Antennas." I don't believe he includes calculations for any of the KT34 series, as he does for several popular antennas, but he offers all you need to calculate the wind induced torque.
