Does anyone have any experience using Phillystran (6700') w/ guyed towers? I'm
installing a 55g tower this fall and would appreciate comments from the field.
I have no experience w/ the stuff.
I read K5RC's comments w/ interest, and he seems in favor of using 'stran,
given steel leaders are installed at the tower, and at the ground.
Does anyone else have comments? Here are my concerns:
1.) Has anyone lost a potting end, snapped a guy, or cut a guy by accident?
2.) Can large antennas be put up safely ? If a sharp piece of hdwe catches the
guy, can the guy be cut?
3.) Does weather or ultra-violet limit guy life?
4.) Do tower vibrations dampen out? Does the elasticity of 'stran cause the
tower to sway more than it otherwise would w/ steel guys?
5.) I assume that one would follow the same guy schedule given in the Rohn
book. Do any mods to those drawings apply for 'stran?
Thanks, Steve, K0SF.
