I am starting to understand the guy tension subject now. In years past, local hams pulled on the guys and if the tower was straight, clamped it.
I have to get a tension gauge. I found a neat and simple way to calibrate (or check calibration of) the Loos without any elaborate equipment so I'll pick up a PT-2. (Shameless plug for best price I found - http://www.onlinemarine.com - Loos PT2 $64.99 )
That said, I think I'm leaning towards 3/16 7x19 zinc-plated (rather than galvanized) EHS for all but the upper guys. (Nuther shameless plug - McMaster.com - Part Number: 3450T41 $0.52 per Ft. I found that TexasTowers has 4000# Philly for.89/foot.) I could then hang inverted Vees along the top guys for 80 or 160.
