[TowerTalk] Getting your moneys Worth

I just removed a 25G tower and a Ham IV rotator was mounted inside it and no
braces were cut.

Maybe you are working with a T2X rotator?

A while back I mentioned trying to fit a Han IV into a 25G and not wanting
to cut a brace.  As the mast will extend about 12' above the top of the
tower, I did not consider mounting inside the short section with the flat
top plate to be desirable either.  Sooo... I finally decided to mount the
rotator externally and run a two section mast down through the
tower.   That will leave the rotator 20 feet above ground level and 30
feet below the flat top plate...give or take a tad.  I should be able to
stand on the roof and work on it.
