I had my guy anchors engineered by a PE as well. Complete details will be
on my Website and I'll announce it here.
My 10 ft 8 inch I Beam 6 ft elevated guy anchors have a 1/2 inch thick,
steel plate welded to the bottom of the I-Beam in the concrete. This is a
for any elevated anchor so that upward force pulls at the concrete block.
are specified as 8I23, meaning 8 inch face, weight = 23 pounds per linear
foot. All these
specs were established by the PE who designed my system. They may or not
for your installation.
Al these design details must be specified by a PE who designs your guying
to the tower and antenna(s) mounted or to be mounted in the future to the
tower at the
rated wind speed and meet TIA/EIA-222-F, STRUCTURAL STANDARDS FOR STEEL
ANTENNA TOWERS AND ANTENNA SUPPORTING STRUCTURES.
Don't engineer your tower yourself, if you want to sleep at night.
