Say.... if done right we could get away with smaller towers.   Just suck 
in the boom and the elements and cut the wind load in half!

We could use lighter rotators too.  Of course, control box costs would 
go up as every time you turn the beam it would have to
1.  Disable the Tx
2.  Suck in the elements
3.  Turn the beam
4.  Extend the elements
5.  Enable the Tx
