Sounds like a LOT of EXPENSIVE additions to this FREE? tower.
Also, the BX series is pretty LIGHT WEIGHT with a small load
capacity. Why bother?
IMHO, the SAFEST, STRONGEST, and most COST EFFECTIVE
antenna support is a properly GUYED TOWER (such as R25).
If you don't want to guy, then get a HEAVIER DUTY self supporting
tower. Might as well get some safety and load improvement if you
are going to shell out for a concrete base (and crane?).
If you *still* want the BX, you should be able to easily 'man handle'
each 8 ft section using a pulley and rope to lower the sections
to the ground. I did that very procedure to dismantle and HDBX
tower (the heavier duty version).
