Default Antenna tower ground plate and foundation design.

I havnt much to go off of just yet. but i plan to pick up several sections of tower with a base plate for it to pivot on to stand it up, and ease of lowering to service it. I only looked at it for a brief minute so cant remember the exact design off the top of my head.

Id like to get some idea of how to properly set the foundation. Im sure everyone will have their own opinions. So go ahead and throw them at me. Ill try to make the best UNeducated decision based on others experiences.

I guess what im looking for is photos and descriptions during and after your foundation build.

Im looking to erect 60 ft of tower with a Maco Y Quad ontop and a IMAX 2000 stacked. "maybe"
And also have a RS Discone off the side and maybe call the satelite company to see if they can reposition this dish so it might not be as worthless if its alil up on the tower.

I dunno if a mast running up through this Maco to mount the Imax will interefere with the Maco's performance.
