I am thinking about putting up a modest tower, about 40-50 feet of Rohn 25G for a directional (rotatable) antenna.

From the Rohn website the max antenna load for an unsupported 25G at 40' is 1.5 sq ft (70mph wind, no ice). However, there is no information for max antenna wind loads for a guyed tower.

What kind of (safe) antenna wind loading might I expect for an appropriately guyed 40' 25G tower (with a rotator & mast)

Oops... Never mind... I found another Rohn webpage that charts loading for guyed towers:
