This gets you a page where you can select the desired height and base dimensions. This also includes the following:

"Notes: C/w anchor stub legs for concrete. Splice hardware, and an 8' x 1.9" O.D. antenna mounting pipe.

To support the mounting pipe, every Top section is factory-installed with angle frames and u-bolts at top and middle of the section.

Tower height shown is nominal. Actual tower height achieved utilizing support pipe provided with tower."

Note the last paragraph.

I won't argue with the specs or bang for the buck, but I don't understand
the statement about Trylon and "8 ft. pipe".  Maybe they've changed
something, but my Trylon did not have any "pipe" -- just 8  8-foot
sections, along with the 3 leg base (stubs) that go in the concrete.
My T600-64' is 64' tall -- or at least 62', accounting for overlap
where the sections join.

If I had it to do over again, I would be giving both Trylon an ANW
a serious look...
