Subject: Am I about to screw up?
I thought that I had a current Rohn catalog, but it turns out to be
around 1997 vintage. Great.
I am in the process of installing a Rohn 25G bracketed tower of about 60
feet. It will be bracketed against my house at around 23 and again at
43 feet (yes, I have a tall house).
However, the base section concerns me. I purchased a short base section
(SB25G) which is 3'4" and was going to use this as my base section. Is
this a problem? I didn't have a drawing for it, so I used drawing
number A871298r1 and modified it for the short section instead of the
five foot section. That means instead of the hole being 4 feet deep,
it is 36 inches deep, including the 6 inches of gravel for the drainage.
The soil is solid georgia clay.
I was all set to pour concrete today...have the tower plumbed (I think)
and leveled and decided I'd better check with someone who knows. Has
anyone used this setup before?
