The length of your guy lines, their size, and tension is making at least one
of them resonant in the audio frequency range.

Take a piece of air hose with an ID that is the same as the OD of the
Phillystran (You'll have to experiment to get the proper length, but I'd
start with 5 or 10 feet), split the hose engthwise and then slip it over the
offending guy line. Tape or glue it in place. You only need a piece long
enough to disrupt the resonance and the most effective location is probably
going to be around half way between the guy anchor and the point where it
ataches to the tower. You may find that evena quarter of the distance out
will be enough to do the job.
