         I talked to my guy at Rohn yesterday and he said that they had an 
employee (he's no longer there for obvious reasons) who didn't set up the jig 
properly and then did a pretty poor welding job. And then it got by QC so 
they're saying this is an isolated and corrected situation. I don't know how 
many production lots were involved or what the timeframe was. 

      Nonetheless, it's still an excellent idea to fit all the tower sections 
on the ground BEFORE you send them up the tower to insure everything is FB 
and save your tower crew a lot of grief. 

      I think that the galvanizing slag will continue to be a problem though.
