    I take it from your remark that you don't have a Rohn catalog since it 
spells out all the specs that you asked about; i.e. tower capacity and guy 
sizes. It's mandatory that you have one to help in your planning and 
construction. They're available from  <A HREF="http://www.championradio.com">

    The primary installation planning/building spec is your local county 
windspeed. What is it? That will make most of the decisions for you. You can 
look up the TIA-222 county windspeed ratings at the same website under Tech
