I am getting ready to install my Rohn 45 tower. I am planning a 100 foot tower 
with a wall bracket at 18 feet and 3 sets of guy wires. I am going to bury a 
standard 10 foot section in concrete. I have been studying the Rohn drawings 
and they show a short base foundation drawing. They are calling out a 2ft 6in 
by 2ft 6 in hole which is 4 foot 3 inches deep. They show gravel in the bottom 
of the hole for leg drainage. The drawing doesn't show a rebar cage. A rebar 
cage is called out for the base pin foundation.  Is it OK then to not use a 
rebar cage when using a buried section per the Rohn drawing
