Can you tell me what your local building code requires of towers and
antennas? For example, here in Massachusetts, the bldg code requires the
ability to withstand 30 p.s.f (lbs. per square foot) of pressure, and
does NOT specify any additional requirement for radial ice.
Does your local building code specify windload at 30 p.s.f.? (If you are
not in the USA, is it in Kg. per square meter?) Does it use windspeeds
(miles per hour? kilometers per hour?) What are the specifications, and
units of measure for your local building code?
