>Here in Southcentral Kansas, we had a very wet 10" snow about a week ago,
>The TH6DXX and the Rohn 25G came through OK....but my 160 meter L did not.
>I am using a cross-arm at the top of the tower (just under the rotor). I
>cannot remember what you call this stuff exactly, but you can get it at any
>hardware store. It is used to install garage door openers and window
>air-conditions. It is angle-iron with pre-stamped-drill holes. It is
>pretty good to mount on the 25G because the holes match great.
>But, the dog-on thing bent under the weight of the snow on the horizontal
>part of the 160 Inverted L. Yes, there was about 4 inches surrounding the
>wire and the parachute cord which was tied to an old elm tree that shed
>about 15 percent of all its limbs in the snow.
>Question.... What do you use for a STRONG cross arm?
