Is it a Force 12 model? I've not been around too many big triband yagis.
20 years ago I helped Jim, K0RH (SK) of Valley Center, KS raise antennas on his 140 rotating tower. If I recall he had three 10m monobanders, 2 15m monobanders, and 2 20m monobanders along with a larger tribander all tied into a WX0B Stack Match. I think they were all KLM models. That was loads of fun in a DX contest.
I've a Hy-Gain Explorer 14 that I've worked on refurbishing on and off to go back up "one day". I'd like to raise the tower to 70 feet and add the 40m kit to it. Trouble is that I've been around towers too much and want to find someone who does this stuff and knows what they're doing to redo the anchors and the tower work for that height and to recommend the right stuff so that skyhook stays up a while! I almost lost the EXP-14 in the early '90s because I didn't understand the loads placed on a mast and chose one that was far too light for the job.
