YOUR TOWER IS A ROHN PRODUCT, IT WAS MADE EXCLUSIVELY FOR MOTOROLA,
AND CALLED "H.W. TOWER". SOME PEOPLE DUBBED IT ROHN 35, FOR IT
WASN'T 25, NOR WAS IT 45, BUT ROHN TOWER CO OFFICIALLY CALLS
IT "H.W." IT ALMOST CAN BE TREATED AS 45, BUT NOT QUITE. IF YOU
CAN GUY IT, YOU WILL BE MUCH BETTER OFF. YOU WILL BE PUTTING A
LOT OF PRESSURE ON WHAT-EVER THAT WALL BRACKET IS ATTACHED TO,
UNLESS YOU KNOW IT WON'T GIVE AT ALL, THAT BEING THE CASE, YOU
WILL BE O.K. WITH NO MORE ANTENNA THAN YOU MENTIONED. BY THE WAY,
YOU GOT A TREMENDOUS GIFT!!!! 73 DAN N4GNR
