Kelly, n6kj, is looking for a way to swivel his 2el/40m to vertical so he can 
work on it without having to drop........errrr, lower it from the tower.

Kelly, If my ageing memory serves me correctly, the PVRC came up with a mount 
to do just this. I think it was even included in the ARRL handbook at one time. 
Nothing more than a short "Boom section" attached to the mast, coming out 
horizontally about 10" or so. Then you would mount the boom from the antenna 
onto the stub by rotating the mounting plate horizontal (same plane as the 
elements).  Does this "rattle" anyone else's grey matter? Maybe point Kelly to 
a picture/drawing??

GD luck with your project.
