With the installation of a new 40m antenna here, I've been planning to beef up 
the strength of my tower. The plan is to add double or "star" guying at one or 
more guy levels on the tower.

Rohn sells a special guy bracket for this purpose called the TA45. This bracket 
is a single piece and is very challenging to install after the tower has been 
assembled and antennas are in place. It costs about $225. For 55G and larger, 
Rohn makes a bracket [TA55] that can be retrofitted after the tower is up and 
loaded. Unfortunately, no such bracket is available for 45G.

I have located a vendor who will build the perfect bracket for 45G. Naturally, 
the cost comes down if these are purchased in greater volume. It turns out that 
more can be delivered faster, too, because the minimum order for galvanizing 
can be met sooner.

The price for three or more of these is $280 each plus shipping. Anybody 
interested in beefing up your 45G tower before the winter weather hits us?

I have a drawing of what the device will look like, if you are interested. 
Please let me know right away if you are interested so I can place the largest 
possible order.
