[TowerTalk] TA-33M idea... good or bad?

Hello list,


All of this talk about antennas got me going.  I recently put up a TA-33M
(14' boom) which is working fine.  The antenna resides atop a 45' galvanized
tower.  This is my starter antenna.  My hope was to put up a C4-SXL by next


Could the TA-33 elements be homebrewed to a 23' boom while having two 40m
elements on the ends?  I would need separate feed lines and I realize rotor
and tower strength are concerns.  However, if they are okay. would such an
antenna play, or would the antennas interact adversely? 



Thanks for the help!

PS: Anyone have a recipe for a two element 40m beam?
