What am I missing here? If you guy the tower permenently at the top, how do
you get the Hazer and the antenna mounted on it above the top set of guys?
I has to be above the top set of guys to allow the antenna to rotate. I
think a Hazer simply won't work with a tower that has a permanent set of
guys at the top.
