The guy "Posts" will be installed in a similar fashion to the tower, drill a 4 
foot deep hole, put the steel post (Probably somehwere on the order of a 3 inch 
reinforced thick wall steel 12 feet long) and then using an eye bolt through 
the thing and fill the post with concrete to prevent water from truly 
saturating it. (And provide additional rigidity)  Let's just say you wouldn't 
want to hit this with your car. wrote:

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.
