Has anyone had the Triex LM-470 professionally evaluated for
antenna load capacity in a 100 MPH Basic Wind Speed zone?
Turns out our local building code will be changing on 1 Jan
09 to require new structures to meet the 100 MPH
requirement. I suspect most free standing crankup towers,
fully extended, may not handle these wind conditions
unloaded let alone with a good size tribander on them. How
does an 85 MPH 3 second gust rating of 18 Sq Ft look at 100
MPH? I would estimate around 4 Sq Ft.
