In most cases the tower manufacturers will specify the foundations,

If you don't have those specifications (e.g., because the tower cannot 
be identified, or the manufacturer is no longer in business, or because 
it's a home-brew tower), I would say that the right way to do it is to 
consult an engineer. I'm not sure that a Web site can provide the needed
