Once the tuning is done the benefit of the tilt-over is during high wind advisories and for any possible repairs and periodic inspections. Also if I want to add another trap for 6-BTV I can do so easily as a one-man antenna crew. The tilt-over was a whopping $39 investment and well worth it IMHO even if just for the iterations of tuning each band. I meant to mention that the construction of the 5-BTV is outstanding. Thick wall aircraft grade aluminum tubing and stainless hardware throughout.

Will see about acquiring one when it is time to reocate my BTV!
