Gary wants to know: 

I may put up a Rhon 45G but prefer free standing with bracket to house at 
8-10 feet and mounted in adequate cement. What level would be safe - 3 
sections be ok? 

Is there a formula? 


Google Rohn Towers, click 45G, and then Bracketed Towers. All the info should 
be there. Make your own conclusions. 

Oh, some info NOT contained is: with a tower brackted to the house, every, and 
I do mean EVERY, little noise from antennas is heard in the house. Got a yagi, 
and it slaps in the wind against the rotor stops? You hear the bang. Elements 
vibrate in the wind? You hear them. In short, if you bracket to the house, if 
you can, put it off the garage end and not by the bedrooms. Oh, and please, 
don't ask me how I know this.
