Being that you have very dry soil you can probably benefit by placing
the ground rods a little closer together and using more of them on each
radial. In dry soil the sphere of influence is smaller. It is as if you
were using shorter rods. Because you will probably not get to much
moisture until rather deep. This renders the upper part of the rod less
I assume that you are also placing rods at the tower base? It is best to ground each tower leg to a rod fairly close to the tower.
If the tower is going in concrete tie all the rebar together and bring out leads to tie to the tower. If using J bolts be sure that the rebar is tied to them in the foundation.
