[TowerTalk] Tower Guy Anchors

I 'dig' all my screw anchors in.  Dig a hole to the proper depth, slit the
tower side of the hole for the shaft, and place the 'screw' against
undisturbed soil, backfill.

Some screw anchors are pretty heavy duty and could easily hold an 80' ft 
Rohn 45G tower. I imagine that you need some machinery to properly screw 
them in and the pullout resistance should be tested.  I would not use the 
farm store screw in anchors.
