Probably a Rohn Clone. I have seen many of them. A lot of local welding shops 
made up towers for the farmers to get a TV antenna up high enough to get the 
signal from the Big City. In my area of Western Kentucky, what with the advent 
of Local Channels on Cable and Satellite TV, many can be had for taking them 
down. Some of the locals have done so but I think most of that sort of tower is 
dubious at best. It is one thing to drop a Channel Master Fringe Supreme in the 
dirt and dropping a Ham Yagi, Rotor and all else.

  Please help me identify this brand of tower.

  I have ten (10) 10-foot sections of tower that looks a little like Rohn 25
  but it isn't.

  This three-sided tower is the same face width as Rohn 25.

  This tower has Z bracing on only one side.  On this same side there are 8
  horizontal braces.

  The other two sides have S bracing.  That is, on two sides there are no
  horizontal braces.

  The three legs on the female end are enlarged to accept the male end and
  held by two bolts on each leg.

  The ends of the legs on the male end are crimped so as to more easily fit
  into the female end.

  The sections are galvanized and the legs are the same diameter as Rohn 25.

  Any ideas?

  Jim, KBØX
