[TowerTalk] Fwd: Screw Anchor removal

Not too difficult, just starting a screw --  I use a 4 foot
long pipe thru the eye and start turning.  They actually
go in easier than you would think.  Of course as it gets
deeper it becomes more difficult, thus the 4 foot pipe for
some leverage.  You end up waking around and around
but the job has never taken more than a few minutes.

Where I have put them in Virginia there has been rock
and generally I have been lucky to be able to get by them
except one time when I just restarted the anchor 6 inches
further away.

In Ohio my soil had little rock and the anchor just went
right down.

Having never installed one, how does one install one by hand? Dumb 
question but I'm faced with maybe doing it & need to be an "inquiring" 

Thanks for your input.
