Guess I have been lucky but my tower has been up since 1980 at this location
without any problems.
I did move one of the anchors (they are the stock Rohn) about 5 years ago
and saw no damage.  I did see
a demo by Dave WA4SSU about 15 years ago where he uased a tractor to show
that it took more than 15,000
pounds to pill out one of the Rohn Guy anchors.  No concrete just Georgia
Red Clay.
