It's a 50' mast. We only had it up about 35'-40' this time around due to the fact that in the past using more feedline caused us issues. Looking at the spec sheet about 100' of LMR-400 at UHF frequencies causes about 3dB of loss. So we're trying to avoid that problem.

So antenna at 40' worked great, the antenna at 30' was down in the trees still and didn't pick up from the further distances (it worked fine for people closer to the tower and people at the edges could hear the transmissions just fine too).
