Dan:

You could use a oversized " inch thick plate with holes where the tower
legs are located and plug weld it to the stubs and then use a standard rohn
base plate and weld to the oversize plate just installed. Better yet burn
the stubs off flush and drill and bolt a new rohn base plate to the top of
the concrete. You didn't say whether the tower would be guyed or
freestanding.

	I have a 10 foot section of Rohn 25G tower in a concrete base.  It
was
	cut off a ground level leaving six foot in the ground.  Is there any
way
	to splice another section of tower on to this six foot section in
the
	ground?  There is about 1/2 inch of each leg sticking up out of the
	concrete.

	Thanks
