   Today I hauled home 12 of 55G tower sections. Three of the sections were different:
             1. They had 10 horizontal braces as opposed to the normal qty of 8.
             2. At the middle of the tower (lengthwise) 2 of the horizontal braces are spaced very close together.
             3. The sleeves on the bottom of these tower sections are a little shorter than the sleeves on the standard 55G.
                  I test fit another section into these shorter sleeves and the bolt holes lined up OK, but just barely. I guess 
                  the sleeves are made shorter to accommodate the greater length span of bracing on tower section.
   So, where is the most logical place to install these heavier-braced sections? I plan to put up 120' guyed and install stacked VHF/UHF antennas. Thank you, Byron WA5THJ
