>  The US Tower 541SS (TMM series) looks great, because it  cranks down to
12 feet (perfect) - but the windload rating is 12sqft and 50  pounds.
The antenna I want to put on it is 9 square feet, but 85 pounds.  I'm
wondering how this would go. So far my questions to US Tower have  gone

    At what windspeed? I think the specs are for 70  MPH or less. What's your 
county windspeed rating? If you don't know, you can  look it up at 
( .  In any case it sounds like the 
tower will be overloaded with your 
proposed  installation.

nothing but base.
    The Trylon Titan self-supporters are the best  value around and offer 
lots of capacity (depending on the height) and a  moderate price - probably 
of an equivalent crank-up. _

on the posted prices, sorry.
