[TowerTalk] Aluminum in concrete

I'm homebrewing a foldover aluminum flagpole to hold one end of a dipole. I
would like to build the tilt base out of aluminum also, and anchor it in

I'm wondering if there is any reason not to bury the aluminum in the
concrete. We do it all the time with galvanized and raw steel (rebar), but
do aluminum and concrete live well together?

Thanks, K3QS
