I have just got my Rohn 45 64 foot Foldover tower up with a 2 el 5 band quad on top. They tower is guyed with eight guys. Four are at 30 foot and four are at the 58 foot point and the guy radius is a small 25 foot radius. It looks like a discone and I wondered if a tower with steel guys could be loaded as a vertical?. I do not want to insulate the guys as they are well grounded for lightning protection. I have 67 foot long radials on the tower (also for lightning protection).
Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.
