OK...
Now, If I need MORE Phillystran to complete one last leg of my tower, and my
tower is 50Ft, and I want to guy it at 45 feet, and my Ground anchor is 30 feet
from the base of the tower, how much phillystran will I need to complete the
connection (I will add on the Few extra feet later for clamping)
