The Rohn drawing shows the Rohn 45 sticking 2 inches into the bed of
drainage gravel. If you are burying a tower section then the Rohn drawing
doesn't require a rebar cage as the buried section of the tower functions
What tower are you installing? I am in the process of installing a Rohn 45
and Rohn 25 tower.
