In winter in MA (wind chill -30 last night),  my screw anchors will hold any 
tower up till the steel fails.  When the ground thaws in the spring it becomes 
much less secure. The screw anchor failure I read about happened when heavy 
rain turned the poor ham's soil to soup.  I imagine that professional 
installation of screw anchors involves testing the soil.
   By spring I hope to have a real tower up.
