Depends on the bracket screws into the wall i would think, the antenna can bend quite a lot in the wind.

Gainmaster are known to flap about in the wind the main problem is when people put them up they put them on poles that are too short ,the poleneeds to bend slightly to take the strain off the Gainmaster otherwise they are known to snap in very high winds, I've had mine up for about 3 years with no problems cos I  put up in this way, I haven't got a video of mine but here is two of my radio mate Mark's Gainmaster doing the wind dance to show if put up right there OK

Mine has done ok for around 15mths and like the post Nubster said, the  pole has to be right size to let it take some strain of the Gainmaster when its very stormy, snow storm with wet snow was even ok, here in Finland our winter storms are a good test for antenna of all kinds, have a willson up on the roof for local radio, mag mount as the roof is metal, does very well for up to 30km ,
