talk (via phone) to anyone who has installed a US Tower crankup  and can 
help me with some general questions related to the concrete base work  -- rebar 
work, Ufer ground, conduit, general questions about how to set the  base up 
properly, any caveats that I should be aware of.

All of these topics are covered in my new book  - UP THE TOWER - The 
Complete Guide To Tower Construction (available from _www.championradio.com_ 
( ).

installation manual, I would be grateful to get a copy. At the moment I  am 
planning on digging a hole with dimensions 5' 6" x 5' 6" x 9' 0" deep; I  got 
these measurements from the US Tower web site and I hope they are  correct.

         There is no  installation manual. Install the tower per the UST 
specs and you should be okay.  The specs consist of the base dimensions and 
rebar schedule and some boilerplate  about the strength of the concrete, etc. 
        Apparently you aren't  getting a building permit. Even if you're 
not, you should have an engineer take  a look at the tower specs, your local 
windspeed and other conditions and  proposed windload to see if it's all
