[TowerTalk] Guy Anchor Corrosion Question 2

The first question related to all guyed tower anchors. This question relates 
specifically to ham guyed towers owners.

The TIA/EIA-222-F is the defacto standard of the industry for steel antenna 
towers. Most buildings codes reference it and none of them make it mandatory. 
In the back there is an Appendix J. It contains 4.5 pages discussing the 
problems and recommendations on how to install and maintain anchor rods for 
corrosion. More specifically - Corrosion Control Options for Guyed Anchors in 
Contact with Soil. 

When you purchased your tower and specifically the anchors, was there any 
instructions or warnings provided about anchor corrosion and how to maintain 

Have you read the EIA-222-F Appendix J?
