It would take a pretty big chunk of ice to damage Phillystran. Anything that
large would probably have to accumulate on the tower itself, probably on the
top plate. Again, I think the extra long Phyllistran guy grip would protect
against any big chunks falling off the tower. It wouldn't protect against
ice falling off long antenna elements or a long boom, but I don't think
those could be heavy enough to cause concern.
Like I said, once you start adding EHS at the top, you have the interaction
dilemma, which is the reason for using Phyllistran in the first place.
