I had a need for that. The center of the Vee was supported
by the crank-up tower. I installed two 47' push-up masts, one on each
side of the tower. Then I used a pully and rope with a weight on
each end of the Vee to keep tension on it. It may be necessary to
space the weights out away from the masts to keep them
from banging together when the wind blows.
Hope that helps.
