Did one of your notes mention a 22-foot very heavy mast with 3 feet in the
tower?  Does this overload the TX-455 -- especially with a 40 meter dipole
on top? The 19 feet above the tower would seem to add a major bending
moment and the failure is located about where the bending force would be
the worst.
