This report describes in detail, three methods of measuring cable tensions on guyed structures. The methods are sag, deflection tensiometer, and vibration. A field comparison of each method was made using the guyed structures at RADCs Stockbridge Test Site. The vibration technique was conceived several years ago for a previous effort and was verified as an accurate and practical method to measure guy cable tensions. Also included in this report is a complete documentation of the cables used on all guyed structures at the Stockbridge Test Site and the results of the cable tension measurements performed for this effort.
