Sorting/Interference on G5RV jr inverted V (No replies)

Set my new G5RV jr as an inverted V with top angle more than 90 degrees. However stron winds are causing interference in the form of clicks on both tx and rx. Seems to be when the ladderline connects with the radiating elements in the wind at the top of my 30 foot mast so need to take down the mast and try to fix this somehow. Looking to cable tie the ladderline at the top to try to keep it away from the inverted V elements. A bit of an effort for me to lower mast due to recent stroke so checking to seek advice as to whether it will be worth it to do this. Strain relief loops are also hanging down and may be another possible problem as they could touch the ladderline. Will tape them up out of the way and hope it becomes usable.

Any other suggestions could help. Waiting for a calm day to do this.
