I guess it also depends on what antennas you have on the tower. If just one
monobander then it would be fairly easy to find nonresonant leghts of EHS
guy wires with modelling. But if tribanders etc.. then they will effect some
band one way or the other.
That's my conclusion after a lot of modelling. Having tribanders and 40m
Yagis on the tower I know that I could never sleep peacefully not seeing
terrible nightmares about those lost db-s if having solid EHS wires. And
breaking them up into smaller lengths than half wl on 10m is making the
project as expensive as Kevlar already and more troublesome...

Subject: [Towertalk] Kevlar Guys
Ok guys start your engines....this reflector has convinced me to " guy " my
30' Rohn 25G tower project vs, free-standing.
The next question: other than higher first costs, does using Kevlar guys
have advantages over EHS or PhillY?
