This is a very good way to do it most cases. I have a 115 foot tower that is
composed of 77 feet of one kind of tower (Rohn JJ) and 38 feet of a smaller
(Rohn 25). The splice between types is at the 77 foot level and it will not
a mast to pass by it inside the tower so I was stuck with going over the top
18 1/2 foot mast in this case.
