I read with interest the various suggestions about guy wire tension.
But the more I read the more confused I become, because of what is
probably a simple misunderstanding.
If I have a tower at 60 feet and use .25" guy at 10% of its rated
strength and it holdes the tower per specs why do I need to increase the
absolute tension lbs. if I just go up to a larger diameter guy? If 600
lbs held the tower with a .25" guy to go to 800lbs just because I am
going to increase the guy to .365" just doesn't make sense to me. (NOTE:
all sizes and tensions are presented for example only. Somebody please
