You need to re-calculate your costs  regarding Phillistran.  Once you buy the 
insulators, clamps and the rest, the difference is small when you factor in 
your time to make the guys sections, the hassle of dragging a guy up a tower 
that weighs 5 times what it would made of Phillistran and the band-aids you 
will need to stop the bleeding from the galvanizing that peeled off the cable 
and stuck under your fingernails.  Use Phillistran once and you will never 
consider EHS again.

Been there, done that, will never do it again.

  Many Thanks to all who responded! Everyone was quite helpful.


  The antenna is a Stepper 4E, sorry I forgot to say that. For the folks who
  asked about Phillistan; I priced it and found that a much more expensive way
  to go.  Looks like 13 feet or between guys is right answer for my situation.


  Thanks again,

  Bill, K5ZQ
