It will Bob...  I had a 140ft RTS system loaded with 2 over 2 on 40 and 4 
ele stacks for 20, 15 and 10 on  a Rohn 45 and it withstood the ice storm of 
98 with 2 in of radial ice on everything for 3 days just fine.   All depends 
on the "engineering" that goes into the system.

"I looked at the K7MI pix.  Nice antenna installation.  I am amazed
however that Rohn 45 is  used to hold up that much aluminum.  Rohn 45 is
rated at about 24 sq ft of load.  Tower #1 must be better than three
times that.  Sure hope it stays up in heavy winds/ice. 73 bob de w9ge. "
