Hi, John --
Tnx for your comments on the Orion mast clamps. After reading the
comments of two significantly more engineeringly informed TowerTalkians than myself
(W4EF & N6RK I think were the ones), I have come to realize that the M2
clamps are heavy but do not do a very good job of holding a mast - an admittedly
difficult task, and that there probably isn't any bolt stretch that
contributed to the problem.
With that in mind, how does one propose to keep the mast from inevitably
turning in an Orion rotator? Personally I'm going to continue to pin them
but even that isn't successful with MonstIR sized antennas.
