I'd be interested in seeing this as well.
OK...Here's one. In the 70s the Universal Towers came with guying
informations, but were made to be self-supporting. If you ever climbed one of
Universal towers that had only a 14 or 11 inch top, guying would not seem
..............and I'm not 100% sure on this one, I think the same was true
of the old Heights towers (70s style), not the new breed.
The guying would really have been a challenge since using PLP grips would
have been out of the question. You had to wrap the guy wire through both of
the cross braces where they met at the tower leg. That was a considerable
distance, especially on the 26 inch face.
Maybe someone has the pics from the old Universal pamphlet. I threw mine
out a long time ago when I sold those 70s pieces of junk.
