And un-necessary welding also.  Just turn one of the angles over and mount 
below the rotor plate .  That is what I did in 1991, got idea from a friend in 
Oregon, call not mentioned as he is not all that active recently.   A company 
in Oregon made some of that design.   Mine is a dual yagi system rotating a 
LJ-105CA (element locations OK) and a slightly modified LJ-155CA (had to 
lengthen boom on one end about 18 inches and reposition elements to get 
adequate clearance).

I agree.  Great minds think alike.  It appears the Array  solutions model 
is very similar to the ones I homebrewed.  Using the angle  irons in a cross 
pattern is the way to go.  I think it is  better to put the torque on all 
legs rather than just one.
