Before I reinvent the wheel I want to run this project by you.  My current satellite antenna system is on a 15 foot tripod using a G5400  az/el rotors.  Consists of  14 el cp 2M yagi, 40 el cp 70 cm yagi, 3 foot dish for S band 16 turn helix for L band.  I want to change the tripod to a 30 foot tower and add a 5 el 6 M beam.  Question- put the satellite antennas just above the top of tower and the 6M beam above the satellite ants. high enough as not to interfere with the sat. antennas when rotated in elevation.  Then if possible have the whole thing being able to tip over.  Has anyone come close to doing something like this?  Or any ideas.
