I think Steve is right.  I need to find the manufacturer's specs on the
Tri-Ex tower I just purchased.  The model number is THD-7122.  It is a 
light duty crank-up tower of seven sections.  It nests down to about 
25 feet.  It weighs 580 lbs according to Skip.  It has a dead load limit
of about 125 lbs I believe, and should handle 7 square feet of antenna
in a 70 mph wind.  I really need to know more about what to use as guys.
If I pick something too heavy and tighten it down too much I can see 
it would be quite possible to overload the tower.  Tri-ex has not responded
to my queries.  The info I've been able to procure so far was thanks
to Skip and reading old QST advertisements.  Thanks!
