Yes Steve, the manufacturer sold a guy set for it. My 1982 catalog shows 
the base as 24"x24"x18" and it also shows an HG-MT2-20 guying kit for this 
tower. So go ahead Chuck. Do what the manufacturer says. This tower is NOT 
a freestanding tower, but was referred to as a "side-supported" tower and 
it was designed to be bracketed to a roof or guyed.
