[TowerTalk] AS25G plate

If one wants to use a thrust bearing on a Rohn 25G and have a rotor plate 
too, the accessory shelf will only fit at the very top of the 'top 
section',... this is where there is no zig-zag/crossbar in the Rohn 
tower,... or down at the very next section (9-10ft down)  One needs to use 
two (2) shelves for this configuration.  The only way an AS25G plate will 
fit about 4-5ft down in the top section is if you: 1) cut a crossbar 
out,...OUCH! and there goes the integrity of the top section ( I guess you 
could re-weld this back) or, 2) cut the plate down and notch it for the 
rotor install.
I think that using a mast that goes down further inside (10ft to the next 
section) is overkill for my application.  I am mounting a Tribander with a 
stacked vertical for 2m/440.
Thanks for your recommendations!
