Hi Troy;

If the towers can be identified as to mfr and model, the mfr can certainly 
supply you with the structural info you may need. If not, please bite the 
bullet and hire yourself a structural PE. Several hours of his/her time is 
worth every penny! Only then  can you be sure you will be loading them 
safely. Good luck.
