I want to understand exactly what you're saying here.
In a strong wind, would you expect there to be more total compression in
the downwind leg with guys attached? I would expect just the opposite...
In low winds, yes the static compression from the guys will add moderate
extra loading, but I would expect the curves to cross at some medium
wind speed. This is for a rigid tapered tower (which doesn't exist), but
I'm betting the results are similar in most reasonable real life scenarios.
