I don't remember seeing any thing wrong with the tubing used. It was the
welds that failed and they failed to stand behind the work. Still,
remember that was over 30 years ago.
Now I do have some old (brand X) 8' tower sections here that I use to
hold up verticals, or wire antennas. Those are made of the soft aluminum
and backwards (upside down?) joints that collect water. The welded
cross braces are too soft to climb and the tubing is easily bent. Even
those very old Heights towers were built far better than that.
