I use a Loos gauge on 5/16 EHS. It probably reads higher than the actual

tension however you can clearly see the effect when tightening
turnbuckles. I do not believe that guy wire tension is that critical and
the Loos is easy to use and certainly better than no gauge. I see no
reason that it would not work on 3/8 EHS but this size is in the
commercial range. I use a transit to plumb the tower.

Hard to use a Loos gauge on bigger EHS though. I've got 3/8 EHS on my
top guys and when I hold the Loos up next to it, the EHS just laughs and
calls me silly names as the nearly unbendable 3/8 EHS laughes at me...
