I am faced with a dilemma.  I have one tower that will accommodate VHF/UHF 
antennas.  Unfortunately, it would require 150-165' of coax per antenna.  Its 
height is 70'.  The height would be magnificent, but I worry about the cable 
loss, especially for 432 and 1.2 GHz.  The only way to deal with this is to 
use very expensive cable ($3/ft).

The other option is to install a second tower that is much closer (70'), but 
with a lesser height (50').  I already own the tower.  Which would you 
choose?  My wife does not want the second tower for obvious reasons.  But I 
may not have a choice!!

Your input is greatly appreciated.
