I recommend not grounding the tower. Makes it harder
to load up. Find a good ceramic insulating base like
you're supposed to have, and the correct guy wire
insulators spaced to minimize interaction with the
radiating element, the tower.

Here, you can see how we tried it the other way and I
just couldn't get the loading to set.
