Reliable tower with clean looks  Time owned: more than 12 months
I use a MA-850 with my 4el steppir. I have the motor drive options for both the crank up and the tilt over and do all of my antenna/tower work from the ground. I originally wanted something in the 75 foot range for my steppir. I decided to get the MA-850 (which is intended to be raised to 85 feet) and only crank it up to 75 feet. This leaves a little extra overlap on each section and provides an additional safety margin. It has survied 50+ MPH winds and hurrican Ivan.

I also have a MA-40 and am planning to add another ma-850 in next year or so and will move my 30/40 mtr 2el optibeam yagi over to it.
