Has anyone any experience with using a Hazer on a taller than specified tower?
I have a Sommer XP704 on a 75 ft Rohn 25 in the coastal area of Central 
Florida. I have three sets of guys instead of the two specified due to the 
possible wind velocities we could encounter.
Getting the big beam down is a real bitch and I am in my 70's! A Hazer type 
system would be a big help but I do not want to reduce the antenna height if it 
can be avoided. i.e. I could have the top guys (72ft level) on the Hazer. 
Remove the second guy set (about 50ft level) and lower the beam to the level of 
the lowest guy set (about 25ft level) It would then have considerable 
protection from major winds as I have extensive tall woods in several 
On an allied subject, does anyone know where to get extended length shackles 
which will go around a Rohn 25 leg, preferably with bent bolts. We fitted some 
that we happened to have, to our club station lower guy set with safety pin 
fasteners for quick release and this makes lowering the clubs beam on its Hazer 
VERY quick and easy as the guy set becomes a quick release system.
