The "standard" Rohn guy bracket at the midpoint of my R45 does nestle down
against the z-braces so it cannot slip, but the device that the guy wire
attaches to resembles a single giant chain link, and are only about 4" long
or so. They are not "flat steel pieces about a foot long" as described. Mine
is an actual guy bracket, not a torque arm assembly. I understand torque
arms were not available for several years because of their questionable
benefit, but have been reintroduced by Rohn in response to popular ham
demand, so the confusion might just be in terminology. Sounds like he has an
early version of R25 Torque Arms instead of a guy bracket. In any case, I
certainly agree it would make sense that it fit down against the cross
braces in such a manner as to prevent slipping down, no matter what.
