Cheap.  Get 10 foot 1/2 inch PVC, slit it and wrap on guy  wire.  High cost 
option, spray with school bus yellow paint.  Low cost  option...$1.25 with 
optional paint $2.25.

I have a  guyed tower, and we're going to have a good number of construction
vehicles  on site for a new house build.  One of the guy wires is very near 
natural parking area for contractors, and some of them may not get the  word
about driving into guy lines.  

I'd like to make  the guy very visible.

I've seen some "balls" on guy wires  designed to make them visible to
aircraft. I'd like something of a bright  color that I can fasten to the
bottom 10 feet or so of the guy wires.   

Any suggestions?  

It should survive about  a year.  I don't think tying a red rag to the guy 
going to  suffice.
