Good suggestion Bob. That is very similar what I did after Hurricane
Isabel turned my Rohn 25 tower into a pretzel.
Couple of other things I did was to cut the 25 off so several inches
remained above the original base. Built a mold out of 2 X 8 material
around the base, extend and leveled the mold above the top of the cut
off 25. The 25 legs were filed with cement before the cement was
poured into the mold. High strength cement was used in the mold. A
pier pin was put in place before the cement set-up.
The original base had a slight rise towards the middle so it was
unable to be directly used for the pier pin base.
