Rohn literature presents only one of many possible tower guying
installations. I hesitate to speak for them, but they appear to want to
present a typical tower for suppport of a business sized antenna on top.
This is where the market is. They do offer engineering services for
specific special loading situations.
Most amateur installations would fall into the "special loading
I think of a tower section as a building block or 2x4 that I can use to
build whatever I need. Their detailed section drawings give me the
structural strength info (except torsional strength) that I need to do
the rest of the design.
