What exactly are you asking?  Not "cutting it" and "still not quite 
enough" are pretty vague terms when trying to describe your concerns.  
Are you looking for information on braking, torque into a wind, 
positional accuracy, durability ... what?  It would help considerably if 
you would identify what was deficient about the Yaesu and Alpha Spid

Right now I am using a Yaesu G1000DXA which really isn’t cutting it and an Alpha Spid which is better but still not quite enough. On one tower I will be turning a long boom 6 meter 8 element beam along with 2 16 element long boom beams. The other tower has a Telrex 6 element 20 meter monoband beam on a 46 foot boom and a Hygain 5 element 15 meter beam the 155ba I forget the boom length. I have 2 thrust bearings on each tower so vertical load isn’t a problem. Thank you for your help.
