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.
