Re: Tower concrete base
A thirty foot tower hinged near the middle needs you to set a concrete/cement base about 18" x 18" x 36"...
Dude, trust me on that.. unless you are putting really heavy stuff on the top that is all you need.
Take it to 24" x 24" by 48" if you feel nervous.

The tower is guyed, so the base can be smaller than a freestanding tower, provided the soil can bear the load (sounds like it can).
Also, the guy anchor blocks will need to be appropriately sized.
A 2'x2'x4' base will require 33 bags of concrete at 60 pounds per bag...plus water at 8 pounds per gallon.
Nothing makes an American want to do something more than telling them they can't.
