I have received a few inquiries about sources for
the Dacron "Stable Braid" rope I recommended
in my note on tower rigging.

The original manufacturer, Sampson, has been bought
out by American Rope company and now markets
the rope under the name "2 in 1 Stable Braid".

It is available in 100ft, 100m, and 600ft lengths.
I priced three sizes in 600ft lengths.  I have historically
used the 3/8 inch size and it is more than adequate
for almost anything a ham would want to do.

Size  Approx Strength  Min. Strength      Price/600ft

3/8        5600 lbs       4760 lbs          $211.35
7/16       7700 lbs       6545 lbs          $255.85
1/2       10400 lbs       8840 lbs          $328.60

One source is Denver Wire Rope and Supply--ask for Dan
303-377-5166  They ship and take Visa/MC/AX cards.

The rope is probably available in any major city from
local suppliers--just look under Rope in the Yellow Pages.
