    DC cable routing through guy wire between two building

    Hello All,

    Just want to seek guidance in doing the title above, is there a section in the code prohibiting this? If none, is there any guidance in doing so? Buildings are 5 meters apart, Bldg A is 3 meters higher from Bldg B. The purpose of doing this is to save from expenses of doing a trench. Sorry I can't upload the picture, there's an error. Thanks in advance.

    Do you mean routing DC through a guy wire, using it as the electrical conductor? Or do you mean supporting a cable by a guy wire (more properly called a messenger wire in this case)?
