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.
