Tower flexing - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I live in a windy area and want to put up a 30-40 foot tower for 20 meters. I want to use a fairly directional antenna to try my hand at DXing. I am wondering if anybody knows how much tower flexing affects such a setup? Will I have to use a guyed tower, or will a hefty unguyed, preferable crank-up, tower do the job? Thanx. :smt017
