    Depends on how strong the bracket and anchoring is.
We had a 25G for 30 years in Nashville with some very small guys and
a house bracket at about 12 feet above the ground and over 40 feet above the
bracket. A TA33 was mounded on top. The house bracket was bolted with
large all-thread thru the brick and wood frame work of the house. Not just 
lag bolts.
    Had a tornado pass thru the neighbor hood which moved a house down the 
off its foundation. Our house lost some shingles and the guy wires snapped but
the tower remained.
    That is all I can say about my experience with these things.
