I don't see a drawing like that in my Rohn catalog, which is a recent but
pre-Radian version that's pretty-much identical to the online catalog.
Drawing C870710R3 shows the guy bracket and link, but not a shackle. The
parts list for the various 25/45/55 towers don't include shackles. "Anchor
shackles" are shown in the general hardware catalog, and they're called for
in the parts list for TVRO towers in the Mounts section. From the part name,
I'd guess these go at the anchor end of the guy, not at the guy bracket. Not
clear what purpose they would serve on those towers, but not the general
25/45/55 towers. Does anyone know?
BTW, the Rohn shackles use cotter pins to retain the shaft. The shackles in
the photo are the screw-in type.
