For what reasons might one select fiber rods & steel guys vs
Phillystran? (Both eliminate the shunt-feed problem and the|
resonance problem with nearby wire antennas.)
Any concern that the fiber rods may be more vulnerable to vibration failure in a severely gusty storm?

at the tower and lower two sets of guys start with the small ones..about
18" long. This effectively insulates the tower from the guys to permit
shunt feeding, if desired. Guys are also broken up with egg insulators
after the fiberglass rods as the guys continue to ground.
