    Brooke,
    
    A combination of a single half hitch with a double half hitch a few feet
    apart to hold the end of the line would hold fast but would require
    occasional adjustment. If your antenna is heavy and apt to cause damage if
    it fell I would suggest safety lines as backup.

    Subject: Knot Question
    
    
    Hi:
    
    I would like to plumb a number of antenna masts by adjusting the length
    of the 3 parachute cord guy ropes that are staked into the ground.  Is
    there a knot that would allow adjusting the length of the line, yet
    would hold fast?
    
    Thanks for any help,
    
    Brooke Clarke, N6GCE
