I knew tow ham that had the heights model tower you refer to. Both
installations lasted many a year. One of them avid antenna experimenter both
HF and Wark bands ( yagi/quad builder) he wore out two of the acme screws over
the 20 plus years and 100's if not 1000's of up down cycles.
Both installations were the 64' models
