HD7698P - Wind Load information

Question:

What are the wind load specs for the Winegard HD7698P antenna? I am wondering if a regular home antenna rotor is heavy enough, or will I have to install an extra heavy duty rotor like a ham radio rotor?

Tech Tip:

At the present time we do not have the wind load for the HD7698P. The Winegard HD8200U is installed daily using a heavy duty TV antenna rotor so the HD7698P should not be a problem. Naturally a small ham antenna rotor designed to handle 10 square feet of wind loading will be much safer. The HD8200U only has 5.5 square feet of wind loading which is more than the HD7698P.
