That's exactly what I'll do if it's not going to waste those folks' 
time.  All I asked for here was an _estimate_.  I expected that among 
Towertalk subscribers there'd be folks who could give me estimates 
right off the tops of their heads because they'd traveled this road 

As a newbie, I don't know whether the cost difference would be $3k or 
$30k.  The cost of the steel seems negligible, but erection of a 
self-supporting tower looks like an awful big job.
