I do not have a Rohn tower, rather an Aluma crank up tower.  It is the smallest 
footprint they make for a 50 foot total height when extended tower.  This makes 
the sections 25 foot tall.  I have a bracket on the second story eve of the 
house, and for insurance I also ran a couple of small cables to eye bolts into 
studs on either side of the antenna to the house holding the whole thing 
against the bracket.  I then crank it up where the beam is at about 32 to 35 
feet and clamped the two tower sections together to lock into place and take 
strain off my cable, it works fine for me and is plenty stout.  The bracket is 
at the 20 foot level off the ground.
Good luck with your project.
