No initiative , that's the trouble.with amateurs today... ;-)

After sutable temporary extra guying, saw thro' each leg in turn and insert
a compression resisting insulator.

OR  , to save money on insulators, dig a  hole around and under each leg,
then , using a swimming pool rubber liner,  insulate the foundations from
the surrounding soil...

A 60m  _insulated_ vertical tower would be worth having, you would save
money then by needing  a much smaller dustbin !

Thankyou to M0BMU,  RU6LA and ON7YD for your replies, which have provided
me
with enough information to dismiss shunt feeding.

I have a sling shot which I can loop over an outcrop on the structure at
around 20m AGL,
from which I will use an insulated wire down to a dustbin formed coil.

PS Ed, my power will not approach 1W ERP with my projected antenna.
