The person working on the tower is me but I know what you are saying about 
guy wires. Since the mast will be nested 6 feet into the tower, work on the 
rotator etc should be clear of the guys overhead.

Rohn provides holes in the BPL45G for the purpose of attaching guys. The 
BPL45G looks like this

and you can see the 5/8 holes for guy attachment. I have the guy bracket 
assembly already, so it isn't a question of money but what is the strongest
