I don't know if this will help but I just purchased a used US Tower
TX489mdpl from the widow of a silent key down here in Florida. She was
selling the tower in preparation for marketing the home for sale. It
would be worth your while to search deja-news as well as the ART and
Yellow Sheets for used tower sales. It is far easier to buy a used tower
than to purchase a used deck or screen porch. Towers are without a doubt
personal property unless they are a broadcast station fixture.
