Think of them as a tool. I've used them several ways. First, on Field 
Day for short towers. Second to hold two 10 ft sections of Rohn 25 plumb 
with the bottom section 4 ft below grade while I pour concrete around it 
and let it cure, and until someone can climb to put the third section on 
top of those two and permanent guys can be installed. Third, on a 
two-section push-up mast that is temporarily holding 4-el 10M and 15M 
beams up (one at a time) long enough to tune them, and until I build a 
tower to hold them.
