Dave is looking for answers for his soon to be moved/bracketed tower: 

Hi guys, I'm in the process of relocating my 35' freestanding Rohn 25G tower 
after 8.5 years on the air. 
<more snip> 
3. The specs also state that the base has to be the same 2x2x4 feet of 
concrete that was spec'ed for self-supporting and guyed towers. 

<end snip> 

Granted, Dave probably has the tower down by now AND I'm hoping that the "2x2x4 
foot base" was a mistake when Dave typed it. 

The Rohn specs for SELF SUPPORTING 25G is 4x4x4 feet......... I can't believe 
no one else caught this. A base 2x2x4 feet, self supporting, would be just a 
tad wiggly, unless of course it was surrounded by a cacoon of concrete another 
2 foot thick. 

Other than this, good luck with your project........ AND always do what the 
tower mfg says..... (was/isn't that what someone on this list always says?
