>From what I read on the specs, it AIN'T guy wire.  It's not  Kevlar and the 
strength is not equivalent to Philly, Polyrod, or EHS.  Nice  rope, but I 
wouldn't use it to guy a tower.  Maybe an 80 meter  vertical, but nothing I 
would climb.

Hi TT'ers  HNY   Planning my spring 10 meter  tower antenna  5/5 35'-72'  
rebuild.  The 3/16 guy wire broken  up with 502 insulators   levels 32' 64'   
It's in good  shape but has rust wash near there attachment points  !   
It's  been up 22 years in this acid  NE rain a new paint job new feed lines  
rebuild the rotors .. why not new guy support.   I Was thinking of  doing  
Phillystran, at least on the top layer. While researching it I  stumbled across 
a product  Sold in the USA by   RL  Electronics  in OH. Mastrant guy rope !
  TT'ers  have any experience with this stuff ? 
Have experience with all  the old style  and new  type  Philly stuff and the  
Fiber-rod.  nonconductive guying material . But this is a new one for  me.  
Thanks   73's  Wayne W3EA
