<That is my concern too with rotating towers however there are many out
## with a plane jane tubular mast, you just alternate sides of the mast, for each yagi.
## EACH yagi needs to be TORQUE BALANCED ! Thats most of folks issues right there.
Its dead simple to tq balance any yagi.
## Problem with the rotating tower concept is..... the tower is 3 sided.... so ALL the yagis,
end up on the same tower face. The issue starts when all booms pointed into the wind.
You still end up with a tq imbalance.
## with all booms broadside to the wind, the yagis are then again tq balanced.... which is... the fix.
## Think of a rotating tower as a 100 to 200 ft long drive shaft.
