Hi Kathy --
I have up a 69' Rohn 45 foldover that I've had in 3 locations over 
a period of about 35 years.  It's a good tower if you don't overload 
it.  I've got the engineering drawings and information on my 
website.  Go to:
and choose "downloadable files" from the menu

The file you want is hidden in the folder you'll see titled "ROHN 
info'   The file you want is:

<Rohn 45-25>

and it is for both the Rohn 25 and the 45 because that's the way 
Rohn did it.  The towers are similar and install much the same 
way except, obviously, the 45 is heavier and stronger.

I hope this helps.  If I can be the source of further information, just 

Good luck and 73,
Jim - K5LAD
