I don't think it will fit without cutting a brace, which you do not want to 
do. However, I am curious why you would want to have all that mast down in 
the tower where it will twist in the wind.  If the mast is overly long, let 
it stick out the top and mount the antennas low on it, just over the tower. 
I saw one installation where the fellow had a 20' mast with about 6' above 
the bearing.  A Sommer antenna with about a 16' boom would wind that mast up 
and we would watch the end of boom move in a 45 degree swing, back and forth 
till the oscillations died down.

my 2 cents and worth every penny you paid for it. ;^)
