It is possible to use a smaller guy radius than 80% if the anchors, cable
and tower are properly designed.  A 100' lightweight aluminum tower is not
going to be able to hold much, maybe a VHF antenna.

I recently joined this mailing list.

If a person wanted to put up a 150' tower but didn't have enough clear
acreage for full guying.and given the cost for a self supporting tower of
that height is prohibitive, would it be feasible and cost effective to put
up a 50' heavy duty guyed base topped with a light weight aluminum free
standing tower?
