IMHO, IF the tower base was installed correctly, the legs should be able to
weep moisture into the required gravel underneath the legs and into the
ground thereafter. The tower obviously has some sort of top section as it
has a beam and rotator, so the amount of rain getting in ( if any ) would be
minimal at best.  - Mike

   My   concern would be where is all that rain water going  that's in the 
tube  legs.

     also  icing  in the winter  ............Bill / w2ay

          If there is a tower installation specialist (and/or engineer) in
the house, I'd appreciate a call. I have a Rohn 25 tower up 50 feet, not
guyed but a house bracket at 23 feet. Three feet of the tower are buried in 
cubic yard of concrete down two feet from ground level.
      I have a Telex TH 6 (weight 75 lbs.) and three other antennas I
will discard next week. Problem. I want to keep my TH-6 but my climber says
he is troubled by so much weight on a non-guyed tower which is 30 years old.
Is worried about tower fatigue. He wants me to replace the Telex with a
smaller, less weight, Mosley.
          Sooooooooooooooo is my tower guy's worries about weight legit or
can I keep my TH-6 when I do my tower work in two weeks? Call please.
