John...I'm no engineer, but I doubt that anyone could accurately provide such a figure, other than
as a maximum, which would likely be the length of the tower. I think that's why it's not on Rohn's
drawings or any other I've ever seen.|
Your Building Inspector would likely want the specs to show that the installation will meet the town's code requirements. The requirements may be something like my town's, for example, which says the tower base must be a minimum of the tower height plus 10 feet from the nearest property line.

The Building Inspector is requiring my engineering drawings to specify what he is calling the "drop zone" or "drop radius" of the tower. He wants to see what is the radius of the circle it will all land inside when it all comes crashing down. (perish the thought!)
See: http://www.mscomputer.com for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather Stations", and lot's more. Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
