Local conditions are as follows: Hilltop location, max winds in any
reasonable period of time 70MPH. 50 MPH considered a big one, but a few
of those each year. Tower guyed 4 ways, at 30 and 60 feet short guyed due
to property lines. Tower is 62 foot Rohn 25 tiltover. Good base. Guy
anchors to be beefed up.
Now the question: Will a recently acquired M2 7 10-30 "Skiplog" fly in
the long run on this tower?? M2 rates the windload as 13 SQ Ft, boom is
30 feet long and the longest element is 50 feet.
Will a "Tailtwister" turn & brake this antenna?
I can upgrade the tower, if I have to and want to. Just don't wanna do
that unless it is really needed.
Comments? I fully understand that what I do is MY decision, and won't
blame anybody for this free advice. If there are similar installations
the input will be of help.
