I read the TIA-222 document, but it doesn't specify the recommended distance
between the tower base and guy anchors (as a percent of tower height).  I
may end up using 4 guy wire directions to allow me to place the tower base
closer to my setback (so the towers can be further apart).

What is the standard % for:

3 guy wire directions (guys spaced 120 degrees)?

4 guy wire directions (guys spaced 90 degrees)?


See:  for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather 
Stations", and lot's more.  Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions 
and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
