TallTower anchor and baseplate location

The side guy anchors and the base plate should be on a straight line. If it is not possible to place them exactly in line, it is better to move the anchor in or out along this line, but no more than 1.5 m (5 feet) off the line. Some sites may require a compromise of this, as anchors may not be able to be located at the preferred spot.

NOTE: Extra care will have to be taken while raising the tower if:

  • The anchor placement is not perpendicular to the tower.
  • The anchors are not at the same elevation.
  • The side anchors and base plate are not in a straight line.

Any of these conditions will affect the side guy wire tension as the tower is raised. Tension will have to be adjusted periodically as the tower is lifted.
