Rohn 20G is a current product and is compatible with 25G accessories. The
differences are leg material (18 ga. for 20G and 16 ga. for 25G) and less 'z'
bracing (seven horizontals for 20G and 8 horizontals for 25G). That means
that it won't take the stresses that 25G will.
The factory says that "#20 tower is not recommended for commercial, ham
CB or guyed installations". It was designed for TV antennas so be REAL
careful if you are considering using it for amateur use.
