Also, the AlphaSpid RAK and Big RAK allow you to put the rotator pretty 
much wherever you want in the tower, generally the lower the better.

Additionally, instead of the pin base plate, you can run another section 
out of the bottom of the RAK/Big RAK and then terminate the mast at a 
base plate somewhere further down the mast thus transferring all the 
torque to a point much lower in the tower.

But even as I type this, I think I remember this being a crank down 
tower situation....  If so....

Disregard and apologize for the tangent. <smile>
