Orbital rotors (K0XG) on a crank-up before? I would like to exchange ideas as
this is my plan.
Where are you proposing to mount it? I'd say the only place you could
mount it feasibly is on the bottom section. Any other place and the added
weight of this brute sidemount will exceed the capacity of the tower
immediately even with no antenna on it. .
Montgomery County is an 85 MPH windspeed zone and it's tough getting any
crank-up with much capacity over 70 MPH.
If you proceed with this plan, be sure to keep your homeowner's
insurance paid up because you're going to need it.
