Jim, don't you reckon that if you had to sacrifice one vs the other that the 
support every 120* on the compass is probably more important than the 
distance out from the base to the support pipes?  as long as the latter 
exceeds the 80%?

In fact, here on the coast, I really think that the compass spread is a lot 
more important considering that with a hurricane, flat winds, downbursts and 
all that sort of thing that we have down here...  can come from every 
direction... iow, forget trying to guy against assaults from prevailing 
directions.   sure as shooting, you will get something from your weak side!!
