Is a TH6 on R25 w/2 in. mast considered large enough to back-guy ? I need to
remove one @ 95' (2' above top of pointy top) and one side mounted @ 60'.

> Why the tower? The tramline should be attached a couple of feet above
where the antenna will be mounted. If the antenna will be mounted on the
mast, then the tram line needs to be attached to the mast.
> For attachment I just use a 2-foot nylon sling wrapped around the mast (or
leg) and a carabiner to attach the tramline. Wrapping a loop sling around
the mast and pulling it thru itself gives you a secure attachment point that
won't slip. If it's a big load then you might want to back-guy the mast
tramline to give more support to the mast.
