When did the ROHN TB-3 and 4 come out in steel?  I have 4 and all 4 are 
heavy cast Aluminum including the one on top of the tower that was 
overloaded and beat to pieces. They Aluminum castings with the races and 
mounting surface machined. The other surfaces are a rough cast finish.

They are far heavier and more robust than the Yaesu.
