Lets not forget ice loads!  Most of the land mass of the United States
is subject to icing.  Many areas -- including my apparently benign 
location in central Maryland -- can and does accumulate 3/4 inch radial
ice loads.

Wind will also damage coaxial cables if it causes it to rub on any


good point. Here in the land of eternal summer, we tend to forget that.  Ice 
not only will add mass, but increase wind forces. Say triple for the latter, if 
1/2 inch. Maybe 50-60 lbs for the former.
