Rather than attacking the problem of weight balance vs 'weathervane effect'
of the KT34XA, wouldn't it be easier to put some extra weight inside the boom
on the director end, and move the boom to mast mount up toward the front end of
the boom. The boom is a massive one and I doubt the extra weight would have
any negative effects on it.
Am I oversimplifying the problem and its solution?
