Mr. Bill --

     Buy more 25G.  Antenna Mart has new insulated base spacers.  A set runs
$275.00.   Their number is 770-466-4353.

     Please don't try to kludge something other than 25G onto 25G.  What are
you going to taper to?   How are you going to erect it on top of 100 feet of
25G?  If it's anything longer than one stick of aluminum pipe, you're still
going to have to guy it - how're you going to do that?  Buy more 25G.  

    You can get another 20 feet or so by attaching the aluminum pipe at the
top of the 25G but that's about all that I would recommend.  Two sticks would
be REALLY ambitious and tricky to get up.  Buy more 25G.
