Freeman, for some reason your ISP thinks my email address is a spammer. My 
last email to you was rejected but there was no way mentioned to report the

I think that is a good idea. I have asked US Towers what they think of my 
proposed idea.

I agree. HRO is several hundred dollars lower. But the extra cost of a HDX 
tower is about the same as two separate TX towers (55 ft for HF and 72 ft 
for sat). Then I would have no big advantage of using just one tower. The 
M2 Orion 2800 AZ rotor can handle 35 sq ft so it should handle the extra 
windload of the mast and small satellite array. If I leave the tower down 
at the 23 ft height, except when i am using it I still think (on paper) 
that would be more than adequate???
