The tower was (and is) guyed at 25 feet (so noted on the page).  So, in
reality, they were less than 30 feet above the first set of guys.  Clearly
w/in specs.

I had to un-guy the tower and correct the position of the two guy brackets a
couple weeks after it was up.  I undid the top set first, climbed up and
repositioned the bracket.  It really wasn't that bad up there with no guys
for the last 30 feet.  I was surprised.  I felt much less safe at 25 feet
with just the top guyed when replacing the middle guy bracket.
