Sounds like old Rohn #6G tower to me. That preceded Rohn 25G and is not as
strong because it lacks the webbing and has only horizontal cross-braces.
It also has to be pretty old. Last #6 tower section I purchased was in 1969
The tapered top section with the welded-in tube at the top is for light-duty
use (no thrust bearing). There was a T.B. available if you used a flat
across top section with a horizontal plate that would accommodate a 2" (or
so) thrust bearing.
