[TowerTalk] Antenna wind load vs tower specs.

I have seen these depictions of the guy wires so low on the tower however I
have never built or seen one done that way.  Typically the top guys are
somewhere on the last section.  Personally - I like the guys at the 5 ft
below the top point.  That gives the most strength vs access to the top


I have to think that the top guys being 15 ft below the top of a tower that
is using 10 ft sections and only 80 ft  tall is seriously reducing the load


Curious as to opinions in this area.
