I wasn't following this until just now, but where are you located?
The 50' telescoping masts (Rohn H50 etc.) have to be guyed every 10' in
three or four directions, so that's 15 to 20 guys. If you want to use
an inverted vee with one, you don't want to use metallic guys (as are
normally used); the masts can be safely guyed using Dacron, Kevlar, etc.
ropes that are tensioned by turnbuckles.
I've put up a lot of these things over the years, there's a science to
it for sure!

That's what I'm trying to find - someone who does this for a living -
safely. I may have actually found a local one, listed on the internet.
If they can support a TV antenna and rotor, you'd think that they can
surely support a 2M-sized ground plane antenna and an inverted vee.
