I had this problem with an older Tristao. Lou Tristao told me to bend the cross bar out a little. Rubbing did cause the wire to splinter which is a real problem if not replaced finally.

Subject: [TowerTalk] Crank up tower bracing rubbing against cable

Hi All,

I've discovered that my less than a year old TX-472 tower has three places where the steel cable is rubbing against the tower. Attached below is a link to some photos of the problem. In one spot the interference has worn away a lot of metal and it caused some cable wear. I was wondering if anyone has experienced this and what I could do to remedy it. I've sent the photos to US Tower and I'm still waiting for their response. I crank my tower down every day and sometimes under light wind condition. I don't know if wind has anything to do with it. Thank you and very 73.

Best Regards,
Jonathan Woo, W6GX
