Hi, Matt --

     The EIA/TIA-222-F is only for tower structures; antennas don't have a
similar standard.  Do you have a copy of Dave Lesson's, W6QHS, book on
Physical Design of Yagi Antennas?  It is the only published info I know of on
wind balancing/compensating elements.  Dave kind of 'invented' this
