The best method for rotational resistance is to run double guys up to
your "star" bracket. My 190' Rohn 80 has 2 levels of double guys with
star brackets and is engineered for four full blown cell sites, (48)
1-5/8" feedlines, plus 2 full size 40 meter beams.
I can't quite see how a Y in the guy near the top will resist rotation
