If the tower is designed to be self supporting then I would greatly not recommend guying it. Self
supporting towers are actually designed that way with no need for guys. Guying a self supporter
will prevent it from twisting like it wants to by design and could actually create a big problem.|
My two cents, Gd Luck, Phil KB9CRY
I presume you mean do not CONVERT a self supporter to a guyed tower. A self supporting tower installed as a self supporting tower can be guyed. For example Delhi towers manufactured in Canada use the same base installation regardless of whether they are self supporting (<60 ft.) or guyed (>60 ft). I guy all my Delhi towers and some are more than 25 years standing.
