Im using a T2X for a TH7 and a 402CD at 112 ft. No problems for the past 6
or 7 years...Kinda slow in the wind though....Also move the start-up cap to
the top of the tower. Been thru a top wind of 112 several years ago....

I also have a G-1000 on another tower....I woudlnt use it on the
TH7/402CD I have here.....Im not sure of the G2800, Ive never used one.
