Some missed points are the weight load and mast length. Your tower is rated for 
a top load of approximately 150 lb.s on a 2 foot mast. Either antenna, rotor, 
and a short mast will bring you very near this weight limit. These towers were 
not designed for extended masts and when employed, will reduce the loading by 
extending the moment. The bottom line is I believe the new antenna will put the 
tower at its limits without a cushion. One final note- regular inspection and 
maintenance of the lift cables, pulleys, and bolts is a must.

gl es be safe,
