K4JNY and I are building yet another tower at his place, this one
a Rohn 45.  We have acquired some Phillystran that formerly was
holding a 100' Rohn 25 up until we pulled it all down last year.

There is info about breaking strength for Phillystran, but nothing
I can find that shows breaking strength vs. diameter.  According 
to the calipers, what we have is .26".  What I can't tell is how
to find out what the breaking str is for this.

Questions:  Will this Phillystran, terminated to 1/4" EHS guy wire
at the ends be adequate for holding up a 120' Rohn 45 tower done
'by the Rohn book' for engineering and not overloaded with
antennas?  Where can I locate diameter vs. breaking strength
table for Phillystran?
