Yup! Or to fix what's up there when it breaks.
On the other hand, a push-up can be a useful tool for temporary
installations for which it is an adequate solution. I currently
have a 4-el 10M Yagi on a push-up at about 20 ft in my back yard
so that I could check it out and tweak its tuning. A few months
before, I had a 15M Yagi in the same tuning position. In both
instances, the mast is/was very well guyed, and it's easily
withstood several storms with gusts in the 60 mph range.
And I wouldn't feel too badly about something for 6M and/or 2M on
a mast like that for Field Day. Remember -- just because it CAN go
to 50 ft doesn't mean that it SHOULD go to 50 ft. :)
