Step 4: Click the Gantry
If the Wire is attached to a Poral you will see both of the Masts and the Gantry listed.
Step 5: Adjust SPS position
Adjust values for the Distance From Wire/Offset from Support.
Distance From Wire: This is the distance between the Wire point and centre of the SPS measured in metres
