On my Rohn 45G foldover in Vermont, I fabricated a bracket
system which kept the yagi horizontal,while the tower folded

This allowed full lowering, and prevented skewering the roof
when the tower folded over, plus walking height maintenance.

The idea was published in one form, in RadCom, back in the late
90's.  I took pics and wrote an article on my variant of it, 
for QST, but never submitted it for publication.  Still have 
the pics,somewhere, I believe.

If TT feels it's worth publishing, as a concept, I'll
submit it to QST.

If anyone needs specific details/pics, I'll look for 
same.  I know where the prototype is, and can recover
it, if needed.
