I don't see any downside to adding a second set of anchors.
I had an anchor rod corrode through a few years ago, after it had
been in the ground for 18 years. Fortunately, I was at home, saw
it fail, and was able to take emergency action before the tower
fell over, but it was pretty scary stuff! It did make for a good
story on the reflector, though.
