Is it safe to trust a rusty tower? Not sure I would want to climb a
tower with rust. I sent over 300 feet of 25G to be recycled because of
There is rust and there is RUST!
Light surface rust on the rungs of Rohn 65 is a lot different from rotted out
Rohn 25. The first is a tower that could be used safely for another 20 years
in a normal climate. The second is widely used in CB applications.
Common sense rules in buying and erecting tower with rust.
