How this relates to load at the top is unclear to >me, and not addressed by Rohn in the book. Hi, Barry -- What about my other statements? I was hoping that someone would be able to address the more esoteric forces and calculations of the cable vis-a-vis tower load. Not being an engineer I never knew the integral calculus to forget it in the first place. I'm sure that there are some fluid dynamics involved or section modulus or other things that I don't even know about. Can anyone shed any light on this topic? Inquiring minds want to know. 73, Steve K7LXC -- FAQ on WWW: http://www.contesting.com/towertalkfaq.html Submissions: towertalk@contesting.com Administrative requests: towertalk-REQUEST@contesting.com Problems: K7LXC@contesting.com Sponsored by Akorn Access, Inc & N4VJ / K4AAA ```
