I guess what Keith is try to say about “pulling on something” is that if you use the guy wires to hold up your tower and if the guy wires DO NOT have insulators on them, then the guy wires act as elevated radials and THIS is the grey area whether the FCC may or may not accept (depends on the mood of the inspector) and might ask you to either A.) remove the guy wires or B.) use insulators for tower support. This is a judgment call on the agent if or when you are inspected. Now using buried radials is ok.
