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.  


See:  for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather 
Stations", and lot's more.  Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions 
and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
