As a radio amateur I want to install an aerial mast but I live on a very windy coastal site (90 to 100 mph!). Where I want to install the mast I only have limited space to attach guy wires and as such I want to be able to calculate the strain that would be placed on guy wires if I use cross braces as shown in the attached drawing (Microsoft Word document). I guess this is the same problem that someone designing a yacht’s rigging would have. Being a bit thick I would like a worked example if possible so that I can play with the numbers.
Thanking you in anticipation.
