It's all a matter of "degrees" ... pun intended. Matter of fact, a tilt may
even make aerial work more better, depending on the desired direction of

Subject: [TowerTalk] Speaking of Vertical
The "how vertical is vertical" question raises another question. If I put up
a wire vertical, how vertical does it have to be? In-other-words, I have a
tree that is 50 feet high, or even 60 feet high, how much can I "lean" the
vertical wire and get the same results as a "true" vertical wire??
