4. Mast Base Assembly AB-154/U. This
assembly consists of Guy Stake GP101/U attached to a
yoke and clevis pin assembly. The lowermost Mast
Section Assembly AB-35/TRC7 is placed in the yoke
and clevis pin assembly. The yoke and clevis pin
arrangement allows the mast assembly to be lowered to
the ground by pivoting around the stake.
