I am starting the planning phase of my tower. I am thinking of installing a 
Texas Towers HDX-589MDPL crank up tower. I would like to put a MonstIR beam on 
it. I am concerned with the windloading - fully extended I don't think that I 
have enough safety margin - I believe that the Steppir has a windload of around 
30sq feet.

Can I guy this tower at the top to get a better wind loading or should I leave 
it at say 50 of 60 feet most of the time? Does anyone know how the max 
windloading figure increases as the tower is nested?

What would be the recommended rotor for a beam of this mass - I want the 
installation to hold up in our rough summer storms. I am located in North
