Guying Technique

In order to minize arcing to ground via the guy ropes (rope conducts when it gets wet with salt water!!), Team Vertical devised a simple, effective, and light weight guying method for short-term installations. Tie wraps are used as insulators by making a loop with them. These loops are then tie wrapped to the antenna. In the photo, you can see the green and red "insulators" at the guy attachment point.  The antenna shown is the top of the Sigma-40 vertical. (W6NS Photo)
