Hi, Steve --
You've been kinda quiet for awhile.
I'd put an insulator at the top of each guy wire, otherwise the whole
shebang is grounded (is that a good idea for an antenna?).
Insulating the guywire also isolates the guy wire and hardware from a
lightning strike. A strike going through your turnbuckles will likely weld
