I wouldn't think so, generally the AM broadcast tower is insulated at
the base and fed there, so, generally no coax on the tower. Some
installations decouple a bit and put a microwave linking antenna or
something on there, but not often.
Generally the guyed towers screw themselves right into a ball as the
weight/tension/pull of the guy wires brings it to the ground.
