I used torque arms on my Rohn 45 to get the Phillystran a bit farther away
from the tower and out of harms way of tools, etc. as I'm climbing or
working on an antenna just above a guy point. I've certainly read all of
the controversy about whether or not torque arms actually work as intended.
If they do help, that is great. If they don't, I still feel better about
the protection they might help to provide to the Phillystran .
