Depending on the soil, you may get away without even needing guys. 
This being the case, I'd guess you'll pay between $400 and $600 for 
the concrete.  A lot of this depends on the engineering related to 
the soil composition.  I'm not a tower engineer, but my guess is 
that you will need at least 4X4X4 without guys unless the soil is 
wet or sandy, in which case, you may need to build guy points (which 
may or may not require concrete).  I guess what I'm saying is, you 
should contact an engineer to help with the engineering of the 
structure.  The last tower I had built cost about $500 for the 
concrete truck.

Dunno...where do you live (or better, yet, where will the tower
