The gyro towers are not truly identical. The one at PGA is one hundred feet shorter due to height restrictions. Originally used to seeing the tower at Gurnee, the one at Santa Clara looked oddly short to me. Now I'm more accustomed to seeing the shorter Santa Clara tower and the one at Gurnee now looks unusually tall to me.
