Yep, it is affectionately known as Rohn 35 but was never marketed 
as such.  It was sold exclusively as Motorola HW series tower.

The legs are the same size / strength as Rohn 25 while the diagonals
are 1/32 inch larger.  At approximately 15 inches per side, it is easy
to place a rotor anywhere within the tower and VERY confortable to
climb.    I have 130 ft of it standing and wish I could find more.

I made my own rotor shelf and torque arm stabilizer using a triangular
plate and 1/4 inch by 2 inch angle aluminum arms that connect to
the plate, tower legs, and entend to the guys where they are attached
with cable clamps.   The guys are connected to the tower two steps
above the rotor plate.
