I just looked at the Rohn catalog sheet.
The 25AG4 top section is 8' 3/16" long. The spot for the rotor is 1' 4"
3/4"(or 16 3/4") from the top. That's plenty of room to mount the rotor
plate and rotor. You don't want a lot of mast going down the tower. All of
the Rohn top sections have a space with no Z truss in order to mount the
rotor and rotor plate.
Keep in mind that a rotor like a Ham IV won't even fit inside the section
with the Z-truss there anyhow. It's too wide.
