2)   I need to use Elevated Guys.  (I have small children and can't have  
anything basically at head/neck level.  I'm planning to put the tops of  my guy 
points at about 8 feet.  (Does this change the rating?) I plan to  also employ 
a house bracket at 8 feet.  This is more for the initial  installation of the 
tower, however, it's not bad extra  insurance

Anytime you change the original specs of the manufacturer, you are in  
essence, becoming your own PE.  Without knowing how you plan to elevate the  
points, what material you plan to use in doing so, how much concrete you  plan 
on putting in the holes, not even a PE could give you a good answer.   Most 
guys on the reflector are not PEs so any answer they give you would only be  an 
educated guess.  
The rating on the  60 ft Rohn 25 with a 90 MPH rating  is 10.2 sq ft.
