your book will be ready for sales....I'm sure it will be a  "Must" for all 
folks with a tower. Steve what is your feeling of the "Dual  Tram" .... seems 
requires more set up etc....but their must be reasons of a  dual vs the single 
tram as you describe..??

    A tram is where the load is under one tramline.  What you're describing 
is a trolley system where the load rides on top  of 2 lines. It is a real PITA 
since you have to rig it so that the 2  lines are spread apart, it's difficult 
to tension them equally, the antenna  has to be balanced just right and then 
you've got tons more friction  trying to slide the load up the lines. Not 
worth the effort IMO.
