As far as I know, you either cut one of the side braces, or use a smaller
rotator. I cut mine to install the Tailtwister 12 years ago to put it in my
120 feet tower with a 17 foot mast and it has made it through two hurricanes
just fine.  Remember Roger, you will probably be replacing the rotator from
time to time due to broken gears, lightning, etc so you need to be sure that
whatever method you use, it is easy to replace it when necessary.

I finished rebuilding the Ham V/IV  some time ago and am ready to put the
top section on the 50' 25G.  What I've discovered is there is no way to fit
the Ham V into the tower except lowering it down from the top.  I will not
cut a side brace to make room nor bend one very far that can't be
straightened to look proper.  I do not want to weaken the tower ...*any

Any socially acceptable suggestions?
