Anyone have experience with dacron polyester rope for use as guys for Rohn 25 towers? AES has an advertisement for such a product. It is manufactured (or marketed) by Synthetic Textiles, Inc. and comes in three sizes: 3/32 in, 260+ lbs; 3/16 in, 770+ lbs and 5/16 in, 1790+ lbs.
Also, what type of clamps are required? I have a 70 ft, Rohn 25 tower that is quyed at the top and middle. I like the idea on non-conductive guys but I am concerned about stretch, weathering and longevity.
Any comments will be appreciated.
