I know.  On one hand I want it good enough for a CPE, but on the other hand I don't want to hear on the news 20 years from now that it crashed over and killed a guy when he wanted to put his VW Bug on top of it.  I want to build it to take whatever people want to put on it.

Only a CPE today, but towers always beg for more equipment. Don't skimp, you never know what you will want/need in the future.

Subject: [WISPA] Rohn BX 
Tower

  
    
I dug a hole 32 inch square by 42 inches deep yesterday for a 

rohn 

bx

tower.  It is 5 sections of 8 ft.  I just got 15 bags of portland 

cement

    

      
and will add my own 

gravel.

  

    
I was thinking about three 1 1/2 inch pieces of pipe stuck in 

the 

concrete

    

      
to bolt the tower legs to.  I 

will

  

    
thread and put couplers on the pipe at 22 inches so they can't 

move.  

I've

    

      
got some re-bar to chuck down in the hole 

too.

  

    
I've got 3 8ft ground rods and will bond with #4 bare stranded 

wire.  

I

    

      
picked up a load of grade 8 

bolts,

  

    
washers, and lock washers for bolting the tower together and to 

the 

pipe

    

      
stubs.  Anyone have any 

suggestions

  

    
for me?  This is my first tower.  I will pour tomorrow 

afternoon.
