Not here in No Cal -- Rohn 25 sections are pretty hard to find, because 
lots of guys are building towers. Two years ago, it took me four months 
to accumulate four sections nearby.  This spring, I was able to find 
only three sections.   Luckily I was also able to find five sections of 
Rohn 35, and that's what I'm using, holding the three Rohn 25 sections 
in reserve for the next project.

When considering price, remember that it costs money to ship new 
sections, so good used sections on the ground are a bargain.  On the 
other hand, remember that you'll likely need to buy rated bolts to 
couple the sections together, and you may need to do some reconditioning 
of the surface to prevent rust.
