    Someone recently asked about a Rohn star bracket. It'd been awhile since 
I've installed one so I took a look at a picture and it is indeed one piece. 
If you want to retrofit it, how about cutting it apart in 2 places and then 
adding bridge pieces of a suitable size steel and fasteners to get it reattached 
again? That'd work for me. 

    As an alternative, how about attaching two guy wires to your basic guy 
assembly bracket guy point you already have? What you lose is the larger size of 
the star bracket and its added mechanical advantage but putting 2 guys per 
point would basically accomplish the same thing.
