[CQ-Contest] Star Guys & 1/4" EHS

I am trying to find out the correct tension
for using 1/4" EHS Guy wire with star guys.
There is no information on this in the Rohn
Catalog (that I could find) and two Rohn
suppliers have told me that they don't know.

For Guys with 1/4" EHS the normal tension is 
about 550 lbs.

What is the correct tension to be used with 
star guys?  I am sure that it is less than 550 lbs.

Does anyone know?  Please advise.

Tnx & 73
