wind load for this antenna is well under the spec for  the Yaesu 1000 BUT we 
have had
2 occasions in the last 6 months to have  winds gusting to well over 80 mph. 
Would the Yaesu 2800 be a better choice  given our wind conditions on top of 
a hill here in New Hampshire  ???
    Well, the K Factor of the G1000 is 1664 ft-lbs  and the rating for the 3L 
antenna is about 840 so I'd say you've got plenty of  capacity. If it was me 
I wouldn't spend twice as much for the G2800.
