And for those that don't know how many for each:
     7 braces (6 bays) per section for 20
     8 braces (7 bays) per section for 25

Also in the top section (2xAGx) there is an open bay (that is, no 
cross brace) in the top in 25, no open bay in 20. There are also 
fewer bays in a top section since they are either 8 or 9 feet long 
instead of 10.

If you happen to climb a tower that is mixed 20 and 25, you will know 
right away which scction is which. That 15% difference will cause 
several mis-steps! And every time!
