What is the best direction to face a guyed tower
in an area with strong prevailing winds from one
particular direction ? 

Should one leg of the tower face the wind,
allowing one guy to take the load, or should a
flat face point windward allowing two wires to
share the load ?

Does it make a difference whether the tower base
is embedded or on a pier pin ?
