Well my two cents on this subject is this. I decided to drive three   
ground rods at the bottom of my cement base to hold and align the tower   
mounting base in the concrete before pouring. I know having ground rods   
protruding out of the cement is supposed to be a no no because of   
corrosion. I figured it this way if it takes twenty years for the rods to   
corrode away the base I'll be 76 years old and probably not living at   
this house any way. Who ever is there will be cussing at me trying to   
figure how to cover up that 5x5x5 cube of concrete. In the mean time if   
lighting strikes it can go right into the ground through the base as well   
as my other six rods on the outside of the base.
