normally it is only necessary to check tension in one of the 3 guys on each
level, you can not control the tension in each guy separately since they
have to balance out at the point where they are all connected.  

If the guy wires come off the tower at different angles then yes, the
tensions will be different in them.  The ones closer to the tower base will
have higher tensions than the ones farther out.
