This is the first time I've seen this requirement (25 psf on monopoles).
Keep in mind, this is a DSA submittal (CA '95) and this (25 psf) requirement
does not appear in the regular version of the UBC (non-CA).

This footnote has been in Title 24 for a while.  It may just be that it never got updated when the UBC went from the old 15psf minimum to CeCqQsIw.  You might want to contact Dennis Belllet at DSA (916-445-0783).  He is their codes and research specialist.
