Hello....

I use a YaesuG-800DXA for a Mosley TA-63N.
This antenna weighs 67 pounds.
No problems to date.  Yaesu rotors are built better than
Hygain. (in my opinion)

I had 2 or 3 CL-33's up and had no trouble with a Ham-M, Regarding Yasue rotors just pick one up and you will know "there is nothing to it" besides to Yasue
replacement parts is a dirty word, they want you to replace the whole rotor, I have replaced a part or two in the Ham-M's and it was nothing either to fix it or find the parts. IMHO Denny

I ran a Mosley CL-33 on top of a 37 ft. Easy Way tower with a Hygain CD44 mounted on top of the tower because it wouldn't fit inside.  The tower was up for about 4 years and went thru 4 hurricanes including Charlie with the tower at 20 ft. There was no damage to the tower, rotor or CL-33 from any of these storms.  I hope this is of some help.

Good evening.
You all are experienced with cl-33.I would like some help if you can.
I finished with some cleaning to the elements and traps.After placed up in the tower i checked the swr with mfj259.It was 1,3 in 28.500 but in the other bands the best was 1,9 in 14.500 and 21.500,out of the band.The dimensions are all as the instructions for the phone part.Does anybody know what should i do to lower swr in 20mt and 15mt bands?thank you.

You didnt stagger the settings by mistake did you? I know in my Ta-36 manual Mosley warns about this.
