The IBC 2000 in section 3108.4 wrt Radio and Television 
towers refers to EIA/TIA-222-E "Structural Standards for 
Steel Antenna Towers and Antenna Supporting Structures."

The newest versions is EIA/TIA-222-F. I can be obtained 
from "Global Engineering Documents" on the web. Use 
Google and search on Global Engineering Documents. I 
believe it is about $80 plus.

The IBC 2000 also references ASCE-7-98 which has its own 
method of calculating wind pressure for towers. But 
since your juridsiction is using EIA/TIA-222-E/or F go 
with that.

IF you need more information e-mail me.
