I believe the article to which Jim refers can be found in NCJ Jan/Feb
1992, which itself is a reprint of two articles by Stan W7NI from the Sept/Oct
1982 and March/April 1983 (ancient history!) NCJs. The article is titled
Antenna Mast Design.
Dick K5IU also wrote a series of articles on the calculation of Yagi wind
loads. They are: Determination of Yagi Wind Loads Using the Cross-Flow
Principle; Aerodynamic Balancing: Part 1 and Part 2, found in Comms Quarterly
Spring 1993, Summer 1994 and Winter 1995, respectively.
I know I bought reprints of K5IU's articles through ARRL. I believe K7LXC
sells/sold the Antenna Mast Design reprint. He'll jump in here, I'm sure.
