Thank you all who contacted me about this dangerous situation.  Presently,
most of the suggestions centered on bracing the tower with 2X4 or 4X4 or
metal pipes or channels.  It looks like one can safely get up the side of
the tower without putting arms or legs in harms way high enough to
accomplish this.  While no on specifically suggested how to do a
replacement of the cable, two rigging specialists (6 land) also contacted
me too.  Concensus is that US Tower must have necessary parts to rebuild
the damage and be able to instruct me and my installer to complete a
changeover without injury.  I will post another message tomorrow with more
details on what will be next.  In this way, others can learn from my
experience and mistakes.  Thank you, again.  73
