I am having a little trouble understanding the units used in Rohn's 25G 
mechanical specs. For moment capacity, M, they call out FT.-KIPS, and for 
yield strength, Fy, they call out KSI. My guess is that KIPS are kilopounds, 
and KSI are kilopounds per square inch? Can anyone confirm this?

Many thanks,
