One of my recent installs:

Post #1 in the thread includes a photo of the tripod and mast that tops out at about 12' above the roof peak. I've yet to see any reason to consider using guy wires, even though the mast is carrying quite a wind load. The tripod provides a very stable means to hinge the entire array over and down for service... I can single hand the fully loaded mast up and down with no risk of the array getting away from me. I have a 5' or 6' board with a V notch in one end to prop the mast when it's tilted down. That protects the Y10713 from contacting the roof.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
