I hope someone here can identify this tower. If you are familiar
with the Rohn BX series of towers, it is similar. The Rohn (now
manufactured by Thomas Shelby) has straight legs from the bottom of
each section to about 2 ft. from the top where it angles inward to
mate with the next section.
This tower is not built like that. The metal and construction are
the same and the sizes are the same; however each of the legs are
straight from bottom to top. They reduce in size like the Rohn
version but they are angled inward from bottom to top. The Rohn
towers require 9/16" bolts in the bottom 2 sections whereas this
tower uses 1/2".
Also the towers have a number stamped on the cross braces to
identify the section. The numbers on this tower is DBX-A-121 to
Does this mean anything to anyone? If you know the manufacturer or
have contact information for them, I would appreciate it.
