        [Steve Katz]  I'd ask: What is the tower and what will be mounted on
it?  Such a decision requires a "system view," not just that it's an 11 ft.
roof tower.  (Examples abound, but here are some: If the antenna to be
mounted is an HF vertical, conductive guys are best avoided as they'll
appear as wrongly tuned radials that can cause problems; if the antenna to
be mounted is a 70cm Yagi, it shouldn't make any difference what you use.)
