hi ron, my rohn book is very old and gives about 4 different guy 
configurations for different wind loads... i use the the top rated 
one.  i also use torque arms, very gud turnbuckles, guy grips etc...
the guy anchors are all beyond spec... i do overload the tower 
greatly but several of these towers have been up over 20 yrs..
73 es gud luck, bud
