I'm surprised to see how close together they recommend the hangers should
be installed.Every 5-6 feet (for no icing) seems fairly reasonable for 1/2"
cable. Remember this is for 125 mi/hr wind, and there's going to be a
fairly hefty margin. It's going to have to support the weight of the
cable, and the wind loads, and, presumably, for 20 years or something like
that. I didn't read through all the pages, but I would imagine that they
calculate how much bending and tension loads the cable should see, and
choose spacings that work with that, as well.
