around here, that's US Forest Service or Bureau of Land Management - they have jurisdiction over much of the mountain land here.

Any comments on freestanding towers? Apparently the FS/BLM want all new towers to be free standing in many areas.

I won't skip, but I don't want to waste. I want to do it exactly what is needs to be, well, if it's suppose to be a 48 inch hole, I'd do 49. But I don't want to have to do 5 ft. I want to figure enough for the job without wasting material and time. Believe me, I want efficiency, not corner cutting.

    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.

Don't skimp, you never know what you will want/need in the future.

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

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

and will add my own

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

to bolt the tower legs to.  I

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

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

picked up a load of grade 8

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

stubs.  Anyone have any

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