How do you calculate forces in guy wires?
Here is scenario:

Tower 80 feet high
Two Antennas spaced 10 feet totaling 25 sq feet (bottom 15 top 10 sq feet)
on 22 feet, 2.5" dia. mast
Rotor is Orion 6 feet below top plate
Wind 80 M/h

What are the forces in guy wires then?
How strong the guy wires I need?
