> The tower will have a two element 20-15-10 meter quad..The winds blow
here 45-55 mph. That is what I have masured this past year. The locals
tell me it can get up to 85-90 mph with a good huff and puff..
Other people have pointed you towards Rohn guy anchor drawings and
specs. But you really need to know what your local windspeed rating is.
Anecdotal information isn't that valuable. You can check yours at
(http://www.championradio.com/technotes.html) . Be
advised that sometimes a building department will institute a higher windspeed
than what is listed but it is a good starting point.
BTW you can get a free Rohn catalog on CD including all the drawings
from _www.rohnnet.com_ (http://www.rohnnet.com) . Even if you don't have a Rohn
tower, you can make some inferences from the data.
