The problem with adding guy wires to a crank up tower is that it applies a
downward force on the tower and the winch and cable may not be able to
handle these forces. Maybe you can find another spot for this vertical,
perhaps mount it to your house.

I have decided to add guy lines to my free standing tower.
I have 2 good points to tie to but the 3rd I need to make.
It will need to be some sort of ground anchor, and looking
My Tower is only 45ft wind up / tilt over in a concrete block
and has been up for over a year fine with a 4 ely tri-bander,
I would like to add a big vertical to the top so the reason for
the guy lines.
