Looking for mounting options for a rohn 65g tower

Hi, I have 60' of tower: 2-20ft sections and 2 10' sections. i was thinking about taking a 10' secion and putting in concrete 4' deep as per rohn.some one mentioned a concrete slab with j bolts to mount the legs to, that doesn't sound as safe a 4' section in concrete. Any thoughts on this?
