 I am using a mix of Heights and Universal. They have about the same dimensions 
and (claim) material. You can use that for wind data and, to a limited extent, 
load allowance.

With a "light squeeze" they fit together. I was told by the engineer from 
Universal that the old Heights tower were manufactured without templates (take 
it from where it comes) and therefor it is important that you match up the 
sections correct (and carefully). The Universal sections fit irregardless when 
they were purchased.

Another thing, make sure to check the welding of the cross members. I have to 
spend some time/money to get them redone. Several had cracks in them to the 
point that some even were lose.

Good luck. I was successful in my assembly even if it took some time (and 
nerves ;-).
