Can someone tell me what this is?  It appears to be some kind of guy bracket for 25G, but seems too small when fitted to a section of it. The divots on each side look like they should fit around a leg, but the span is too short to reach.

Its a Rohn GA25GD guy bracket for a 25G tower or a GA45GD for a 45G tower. If the span is too small then it is probably for one of the smaller towers - but definitely a guy bracket.

The tower goes through the triangular hole in the center, with the little bends in the side pieces
to fit around the corner pipes.  Then the guy cables attach to the end bolts where they stick out.

Part number should be stamped on each side piece

As I noted above, the span between the bends does not accommodate the leg to leg span of 25G.  There appears to be no model number stamped into it either.

Apparently the bends are not to fit around the leg, but are there to clear the diagonal bracing.  Thanks for the model number.  A check of the spec sheet cleared things up.
