Actually I think alot of the information that was dispensed was VERY
helpful.  I have 'recovered' several used towers and there are
definite concerns over and above the 'is it worth it, and how to get
sections apart' issues.  

It's unfortunate that we have to be as concerned as we are with
liability, but we must.  Personally I would'nt even consider somthing
in the described situation for the following:

1.      Who assumes responsibility if the tower falls causing damage
or injury?????
2.      Add your favorite here....but I'd stop after #1

I've got 500' Plus feet of 25G on the ground now.....and looking for
more, but only if its worth it.
