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.
