Communication Tower

Communication Tower

Communication Tower

The couple answars I have to prepare from Communication Engineering, what is not my branch, i.e. from the Construction of Antenna Communication Tower.
(1)Lightning Protection of the Tower
  (are special requirements provided by Codes, Standards?)
  Any material available on the internet ?
(2)Grounding the Tower
 (are special requirements provided by Codes, Standards ?)
  Any material on the internet ?
(3)230 kV Transmission Line is located very close to the
  future tower. How far can be ?

RE: Communication Tower

I repeat the question :

The Communication Tower ( 80 ft) must be grounded and protected from the lightning. Is it the same as for the building ? What about 230 kV transmission line passing close to the tower. How far it can be ?
Tnank you for the help. Any text on the internet ?

RE: Communication Tower

Motorola has a telecommunication site standard called R56.  It's had to find.  Also, checkout Polyphaser's web site or call them.   http://www.polyphaser.com
Checkout the Tech Info tab.

Grounding is a must.  There are different theories on grrounding.  Lookup Ufer grounding (foundation) and halo grounds (insidee shelters).
I have to run if I have time I come back to add more.
