I'll let Steve do the math part.

In a magazine several years ago, I recall seeing someone order 2 
extra sets of equalizer plates (the triangular things with holes for 
either 3 or 5 sets of guys) from Rohn. They then welded a single 
plate (the edge with the multiple holes) to the post, and attached a 
regular set of plates to that plate with the included bolt. Still 
worked as an equalizer plate, too.

Another method is to drill holes in the pipe, and install eye bolts 
for turnbuckle attachment. WARNING: use forged eyebolts. Do not use 
eyebolts that have the eye mandrel-formed. There are a couple of 
horror stories around about those opening up under stress.
