Dennis: You will find different opinions here on many subjects however I
believe there is almost uniform opinion on guying crankup towers. Don't do
it. That puts additional stress on the lifting cables when horizontal force
is applied to the tower.  73. Dan, N5AR

Hello all,

I want to thank everyone who took the time to answer my request for Hazer

I received much food for thought; regarding what I'm going to do, be it some
form of Hazer setup or a guyed crank-up tower I don't know....

Again, thanks!

Dennis, k0eoo
