I want to erect a Rohn 25G tower, 30 ft above ground. A small 3 el
tribander on it. I have to satisfy my county engineers as to the safety of
tower installation. It will also be bracketed to the house in two
Problem is, I cannot really go 3 ft by 3 ft, by 4 ft deep for a
hole/concrete. The tower is too close to my house. Rohn makes a
that sits in concrete, the legs of the tower slip over that. Would that be
of any use to me, rather than bury 3 ft of tower in concrete?
What is the minimum size hole I can dig, considering it is only 30 ft tall,
and has a tribander (CushCraft A3) on top.
Right now, the tower sits on 3-- 3/4 inch pipes buried 3 ft deep,,, tower
slips over those, they are simply pounded into the hard AZ ground. Then
bracketed to the house in two directions. It is solid as a rock, but... not
sure that would satisfy the "engineers". One thing they want to make sure
of, is that it wont fall off your property, mine wont, by a long shot.
I need some "expert advice". They ask for Mfgr specs, I cant find any
for a 30 ft tower, bracketed.
