I am starting to make plans for the erection of a second tower and hope to
benefit from the experience and expertise of towertalkians.
My immediate questions concern the specification for a foundation to support
the tower and likewise for guy anchor points.
I have 10 x 10ft sections of tower which appears similar to Rohn 55G. These
sections measure 19.5 inches across the face with legs of ~1.3 inches diameter.
The cross struts are ~0.44 inches diameter. I have two further tower sections
15.75 inches across the face with 1 inch diameter legs and cross struts of
~0.35 inches. These connect to the larger tower sections with a jointing
collar. I propose to use a pier pin arrangement at the base of the tower.
Can someone help out with appropriate specifications for the tower base and the
