      Hi Dick ,
  The computations that were done were all done in the pro head . He had had 
about thirty years experience with business buildings alteration . 
   The reason for the angle iron was to spread the pressure and pulling over a 
wider area . Two lag bolts were used and 
anchored into the beams already there . I have to say he was unbelievable . He 
said lets drill a hole here and hit the middle of the beam every time . His 
biggest concern was the tower was perfectly vertical so there was equal 
pressure on each leg . Also the guying half way up the tower and at the top of 
the tower was important .
   I hope this is of some help . any other questions I can answer , let me know 
                          BOBJ N2DXJ
