[TowerTalk] Rohn - Valmont - Nello - how compatible?

1. Radian now owns the old Rohn company, so essentially, whatever comes out
of the plant now should be exactly the same as Rohn was.

2. I personally don't consider the Rohn design to be 'top of the line' in
self supporting products, the microflect Valmont products I've installed
have been structurally 'beefier' than the comparable Rohn.  I see no reason
to consider that either of them is less 'safe', both have proven track
records in the industry.

Good luck..
