        Steve I have some VERY LARGE insulators that someone gave me once.  They
were used by the electric company.  I think they would work, but you would need 
someone that was good with a welding torch.  You are welcome to them if you can 
use them.

I'm installing a 130' of 55g tower in a couple of months and have some 
questions for the experts out there:  I want to install it on an insulator 
and use it on 160 meters.  In addition, I will be adding one yagi up top.
Has anyone out there base insulated 55g w/ yagi at top ?  I know Paul, 
W0AIH, has done same on similar towers, and he's never lost anything.  I'm a 
little concerned, because I don't want the torque sent through the 
insulator, and cracking it (or worse).  I would assume the guy torque arms 
dampen most of the twist, reducing torque at the base to a small amount. 
 But, the torque actual torque applied is likely difficult to predict.
Last zinger: Has anyone done same with rotating rings ?  In this case, the 
tower would definately transmit torque to the ground, at least to where the 
rotating base is installed.  If rotating the base at the bottom, then the 
insulator must again absorb/transmit the torque, unless the torque is 
isolated above the insulator.
I've considered shunt feeding, but the current distribution is disturbed on 
NEC.  I'd rather insulate.
Finally, I will gain some experience with the A.B. Chance screw-in anchors 
in wet ground some of you have asked about.  I'll report back on the 
results.  My ham neighbor and I will be installing them with power equipment 
as he and I stand in about 4 feet of water.  Should be a fun experience. 
 Mark, K0KX, reports he will watch us from the shoreline.
I know I'm trying to squeeze a lot from one tower, but that's all I will be 
allowed from the city.  I'm not complaining.
