Hello All,

Another concrete question...  I mixed 45 80lb bags yesterday (electric
mixer) and still ran short!  My guess is that I have one cubic yard in the
ground with the tower base in it.  I am about 6 inches below grade.

Thoughts on how to rectify this?  Add more concrete on top?  Fill the top
with gravel for drainage? Fill the top with topsoil?

My son worked his butt off helping me!  Any ideas would be greatly

Tower is going to be an Ameritower, 50 foot with a Mosley TA-33.  Guyed, of
