Figure 17. Attaching guy strap to guy stake.
(6) With the assembled antenna still on the ground, turn the upper
and lower guy plates until one hole is up. (This aligns the guy plates with
the baseplate and the guy stakes, making it easier to erect the antenna.)
(7) Attach guy ropes to the side holes of the lower and upper guy
plates. Pass these ropes through the D-rings of the guy straps (Fig 17) and
then through the holes in the baseplate.
(8) Form a slip knot in each guy rope, and pull the free end through
the slip knot as shown in Figure 18. (When tied in this manner, each guy
rope can be pulled as taut as desired.)
