Tried Part #90 model B on my tower today.
It read the tension higher than required,
but the guys don't seem over-tensioned to me.
Seems like I remember K7LXC or someone saying
that you had to use a larger cable diameter
than your guy wire actually was when reading
the conversion chart.  For example, use the
7/32 chart for 3/16 guy wire.  Is this true,
or am I just imaging?  Thanks.
