At one time I used a CR-18 roof tower.  I had two antennas on it, 15m and
10m 3 elment yagis.

I did guy it 4 ways.

No problems in the 4 years I used it.

I hope someone can give me advice on a roof tower. It's a create 6 foot
tower. It looks very strong so i was thinking of bolting it up on my 30'
peaked roof with a hy-gain 203 BA 20 meter monoband yagi. The yagi weighs
32# and has a 5.6 wind load, The boom is 16 feet long made of 2' aluminum
tube. It's either that or a costly ground tower. Do you think this will be a
safe way to go. I know how to secure it with 2x6 planks inside the attic and
small vertical pieces between the all thread. By the way the south and west
has a wall of trees to break the wind. Am i safe with this setup? thanks in
advance and best in health.
