I was responsible for a 500' self supported installation,
If you don't want any strike energy to go through the concrete base then you better not have any J bolts in the concrete attached to the tower. :>)
Part of the energy is going to go through the concrete whether you like it or not. The trick is to have other adequate grounding in addition to the concrete.
