I already answered Sylvan on the side, but I would like to mention that
AA6TT was 100% cable clamps on Philly and nothing there failed.  Steve, what
do you mean by "causing the fibers to cold flow"?  I have built my station
with stuff from AA6TT and I hope my towers don't fall over because I used
cable clamps instead of grips.

I know your prime directive, but mine is, to butcher Dave Leeson's immortal
yet frequently misquoted wisdom, "experience has got to count for
something."  In this case, it worked okay for AA6TT so I am thinking it will
work okay for me.

Mark, N5OT
