Can someone tell me why would you have to pin the boom to the mast on the 
203BA?? This antenna weighs 32# on a 19' boom.Very light.My mosley ta-33 which 
weighs 37# on a 14' boom.This antenna does not have to be pinned.Can i get away 
with pinning the boom.I am not in a high wind area.Also the 203 shows that you 
have to insert a rope into each element because of low wind vibration.How does 
the water weep out the ends.Whats up with the rope?Are the radials that thin 
that they might snap without the rope?I want to try this antenna but think i 
will stay with the mosley ta-33 which does not require pinning the boom and the 
rope in the elements.Any advice will be apreciated .thank you.
