Hello all,

Thanks to everyone that has replied to my previous posts and answered some 
questions for me.  In working on getting the tower up, my next question is this:

I want to top out my R25 with the BPL25G top thrust bearing plate.  This plate 
has three holes for guy wire attachment.  If I guy to these holes (which I 
would want to do), the tower will be guyed 3.5' higher than shown on the Rohn 
drawings. (41.5' tower guyed at 41.5' instead of 38').  Do I need to adjust the 
"ground length" of the guy so that the same angle is achieved as would be with 
a 40' tower guyed at 38'?  Or does this angle really matter so long as the 
tower is guyed at 80% of it's height as called for by Rohn?  Thank you very 

Happy DXing!
Jon, N7XW
