  2. In my younger years I installed quite a few towers, you did fine. Only thing I would have done differently is bring the cable into the building up high, right under the eaves instead of near the ground where small children or pets could step on it or run into it. Also, here is a tip for putting in grounding rods far easier than hammering it in. Forget the hammer and use just a little water, only takes about a half a gallon. Pour a little bit of the water on the ground, then push and pull the ground rod up and down in that spot. As the rod goes down, keep adding a little water down in the hole as you go. Each time you pull it up the vacuum dislodges the dirt under the bottom end, literally sucking the dirt up and out of the way and allowing you to push it down further. If you had done it this way you would have put all the way down in ground about a minute or two and never broke a sweat. Cheers!

  3. For anyone looking to install a tower like this, make sure to read all the documentation available on the Rohn website for your particular tower model. You will find there the recommended concrete base volume and other very useful information to have a safe install.

  4. Last tower I put up, I also rented a bucket similar to what you rented. I help a friend put up some Rohn 25G and he put 50-feet together on the ground, and then used a small crane to just pick it up and set in on the base. One, nit.. you were not wearing a safety belt/harness when you were both climbing and in the lift. Even being in the lift you need to wear a safety belt.

  5. You should have painted the part that goes into the hole with a tar sealant material. Concrete and the galvanized tower don’t like
    each other. Over time rust and corrosion will eat into the tower from the concrete.
    When climbing a tower be sure to wear a climbing belt. Falling from a tower is fatal. It can happen so quick.

  6. Putting a 8ft gnd rod into the bottom of the hole would have been a very good idea as it provides a LOWER resistance to gnd when using 3 to 5 inch wide copper strap. Three as far apart is even better. Grounding is important here as the dish DOES transmit and you did say you may use this tower for other things as well. If you want to get a good idea on how to install a tower and bring the line into the building, look at radio/tv tranmitter sites.

  7. Six to eight inches of concrete at the bottom, then switch to paver base gravel. Tamp it as you fill. The weight of the gravel on the concrete base secures the foundation of the tower. This is effective, cheaper, and more easily removed if future needs change.

  8. Hi, Just a word of caution. As installed, the hollow legs will eventually fill with water. When the water freezes the legs can split above and below grade.
