Hi again Bruce,
Yes, the stock Rohn shelf is easily cut with a fine tooth blade and a 
jig saw. Likewise, boring new holes is easily done with standard 
metal cutting drill bits.
I can send you a drilling template for the Yaesu rotor bolt pattern 
if you need one. I believe the factory holes are for Hy-Gain rotors. 
My drill template includes those too, so you can align the template 
on the shelf using the Hy-Gain holes as an aid.
