I have used one for about 20 years. Small tornado took it down a few years
ago.  The bottom ten feet was destroyed.  I sawed it off, now use it with
house bracket and slacked guys.  Has survived four hurricanes. I don't crank
up or down, fixed the bottom two sections together and run a small tribander
at about 35 feet.  I've about wrung out all the DX I need from it. Hi.
