squirrels, etc.?>>

Everything you hang on the tower cuts into the windloading capabilities. Most 
of the literature I've read on Ham Radio style towers load calculation specify 
1, 1/2 inch feed line per face. Any more than that and you start cutting down 
on the load the tower can hold up.


See:  for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather 
Stations", and lot's more.  Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions 
and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
