The tilting direction of the mast is important:
- When installed in the Northern Hemisphere, the mast tilts to the West.
- When installed in the Southern Hemisphere, the mast tilts to the East.
There should be a clear area up to 10 m (33 ft) on the side of the mast where it is lowered. The area should be free of obstacles that prevent the mast from being erected and lowered.
