I have a question pertaining to my Hy-Gain HG52SS tower or any other
tower of this type for that matter. The question: Does anyone have a
model or has anyone attempted to model the wind loading of this type of
tower, at heights less than full extension? This tower is rated at 9
square feet at 50 MPH average wind speed. It would be interesting, to
me at least, to see a graph or table stating the increase in wind load
capacity as the tower is lowered to its resting height (21 feet.) I
asked this question via email directly to Hy-Gain, after their purchase
by MFJ, but never received a reply.
Thanks for the bandwidth.
