I certainly agree with this John.  I just didn't like the sarcastic 
response I got for my question which was "is tower shrinkage allowed
Assuming the guys are of a harder materilal than the tower, then they
will contract more than the tower so without any calculations (wild 
guess), guys at 60 degrees with respect to the ground, there won't be
much difference in guy tension.
