Please explain how you arrived at your 14.4 sq ft figure for this tower configuration. Based on the information at:

the answer is 8.7 sq ft, assuming round antenna members. The 45G guy tables have additional sq ft taken into consideration for antenna supports, beacons, etc. as referenced in the "Notes" section of the guy drawings:

But doesn't this maximum load apply only at the point shown on the drawing, i.e. above the highest guy point? The original poster is planning to mount several antennas almost uniformly distributed over the entire tower (in between the guys). What rules apply in this scenario and how can one figure out the maximum load in this case which Rohn does not address at all?
