    The rod should always point at the tower. The Rohn drawings have the 
specs; i.e. 42.8 degrees for a 100 foot tower @ 80% guying distance, etc.

    Grounding is slightly problematic. You can put the ground rods 
horizontally to help. Also use copper strap as it has more contact area for the 
ground. You're still trying to get all the potentials to rise and fall at the 
same rate.
