Hi Dave, 
The hardware bolts/nuts can be had at any local hardware like Lowe's or Home Depot. Both even have stainless steel which is what I have used. The big bolt/nuts are 1/2 inch and the small are 7/16 inch. Stainless at Lowe's or Home Depot will hit you a big $ so it is best to order them from either DX Engineering or Array Solutions. The last time I bought any I paid $4.95 per leg + shipping. 

As for the Phillystran, I have heard it is good but I have NOT ever used it. Depending on your situation, I would think that the heavier Phillystran would work good for heights of 80 feet or less. Talk to some of the fellows associated with W5WMU as I am sure they would have a good knowledge concerning the use of Phillystran. 

Good luck with your tower work.

Hi Dave 
I do not think the city has any height restrictions. The city might want you 
to get a construction permit however most of us do not get a permit. I can't 
help you with the hardware. Pat Sonier might have the guy rope.

Hi all, 



I have a couple of days off next week and despite the uncertain weather, I'm 
going to try and restart my tower project and have a few questions that 
someone in the club maybe able to answer: 



1. Does anyone have specific information on tower height limitations 
or restrictions in the city or parish for Lafayette or a contact number to 
find out the regulations? 

2. I'm looking for 6 tower leg bolts and 2 U-bolts (for the house 
bracket) for Rohn 25G. 

3. Has anyone used Phillystran for guys?
