We are turning a Explorer 14 with a boom length of 14 feet and longest  
element of 31 feet.  We are the Twin City FM Club using a  HDBX56..    Have 
doing that for 10  years!     
I dont know where you got that info on the Rohn but its not  true.    The 
windload of the tower 
is 8 sq feet which is about one med to small beam.    I  think your beam 
would work.    I dont remember the windload of  that beam but think its about 
sq feet.    If you are really  concerned take the top section off and use the 
tower at 48 feet and it becomes a  tank!
Windload goes up to something like 15 sq feet!
