that installation you have in mind will be good just
for medium size TV antenna or just a 2m 12ft boom yagi
just with luck a 3 elements 10m yagi
but not a KLM KT34A
i think your mast is a telescopic mast rohn type,
maybe 2- 2.5 inch diameter heavy wall maybe can work
as mast in your plans, the separation in the rotor
-antenna is too big, at most 1 ft , the rotor hd73 is
ask to a pro for your specific installation need,
there are several options easy and more safe.
roof tower is a good one
