This weekend I took down a 150 foot of R25 tower with elevated guy posts. All
three elevated guy post were leaning. The northern guy post was leaning very
bad and in addition there were a couple of lower support braces that had been
added to stiffen it up. The tower was lightly loaded with a DB224 on top.
I have never seen a tower with so slack of guys. Considerable effort was done
just to get the guys tensioned up so the tower could be taken down. The tower
was constructed on a pier pin and it obviously moved around a lot in the wind.
