Actually I'm working with a ham V according to the stamped figures on
the bottom, but the IV and V are identical except for the control head.
A ham down the road was able to put one in his 25G by bending the
braces. These would have to be bent far enough that it'd bend the legs.
I know of others who were able to slide the ham IV in between the braces
at a junction between sections. So there must be substantial variations
