I too agree .. although I have not experienced that with 55G, I sure have
with 25G -- some like a dog's hind leg ... seemingly .. but with the proper
guy adjustments, straight as an upward pointing arrow .. pretty much ..

I agree with Steve, K7LXC. A tower that is leaning may not really be bent.
I remember a dozen years ago when W4OTX (SK) had the guys on his tower cut
by a highway dept crew. It looked terrible but getting all the guys hooked
back up and properly tightened and it looked like new. Vern had a Hazer
that had to be adjusted somewhat but once that was done it tracked up the
tower like a champ.
