Anything is feasible is engineered properly. Are you talking about
putting a 100' aluminum tower on top of 50' of steel tower? What do you want to
with this structure?
Do you know what the cost of a 150' self-supporter is? What kind of load
are you proposing? What's your county windspeed rating? (They're at <A
