Anyone know why Rohn specs their foldover towers with the GAS604 screw-in guy
I am planning for the 64' 45G (FK4564) and would rather dig a hole, mix some
concrete and use the GAR30s, I think! Wouldn't that be a better solution? The
GAS604 is spec'ed at 2500 lbs holding power, whatever that is. By my rough
math, that would be somewhere between a 3b and a 3c anchor block reference Rohn
drawing C 620643.
The other thing that's bothering me is purchasing the Rohn double ground guy
kit. A) it comes with the screw-in anchors and B) it includes the hardware for
"conventional" tripple clamping the ends of the 1/4" EHS cable. I've seen the
big grip (dead ends) at another ham's QTH and they look like a cleaner and
easier to install solution. Please give me some advice. Should I just get the
double ground guy kit and do that or order a la cart the pieces parts that I
want/need? Wonder if the GAR30s at 7' long are UPSable??
TNX in advance es 73,
