A new thing I learned.  When you buy a bunch of Rohn sections, if you're 
not going to put the sections together and up soon, push or fish the 
little plastic container that has the nuts and bolts out and put them 
someplace your underwear drawer..
      I procrastinated for a few years in replacing a 40' tower and left 
the hardware in the tower legs. When I pushed them out, it appears that 
the containers were still hermetically intact..but the condensation had 
seriously impacted the hardware with a nasty coat of rust. I shook water 
out of the little containers along with clumps of hardware.
      After some serious action with stiff brushes and hallucinogenic 
solvents, they cleaned up pretty I used them. But it took 
extra time and I still feel a bit small.  BTW... keeping  this type of 
important hardware in the sock or underwear drawer, you'll receive 
typically a daily reminder that you really need to get the tower up. 
Personal hygiene may dictate the frequency of reminders however...
    73 and I remain,
