    Roofs have trusses (some antennas too) - towers have bracing members. 
That's what confused me. 

    Here's what says:

>>  Brace -
a. A device that holds or fastens two or more parts together or in place; a 
b. A device, such as a supporting beam in a building or a connecting wire or 
rope, that steadies or holds something else erect.  >>

    Tower braces are typically horizontal or diagonal. 

    Your previous statement

    shows that the guy assemblies were mounted in a wrong spot. As others 
have pointed out, the guy assemblies should rest on the horizontals. 

    Not trying to nitpick but it's easier when we're talking about the same 

    GL on getting them straightened out.
