Pirod has been doing towers in the commercial/industrial market for years.
They are a very well respected company and have engineered many large
projects. Before I moved to AZ I was a consultant in MI on a statewide
digital trunked radio/microwave system that utilized 183 of their towers and
most were freestanding from 250-485 feet tall.
You don't see many of them in the ham scene since they are, by most ham
standards, probably cost prohibitive. I do know that K8RR has a 100 foot
freestanding Pirod he uses in Upper MI.
