Along those lines: Is the standard tower base, rebar and all, large 
enough to even qualify as a UFER ground.
I, like you go the extra mile to make the shortest, most conductive path 
around the concrete.

It seems like I read a paper on that subject when installing my tower 
and they were emphatic about keeping the lightning away from the 
concrete. Also there is the problem of conductors coming out through the 
side of the concrete with is considered bad practice.
