    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 
HREF="";></A> under Tech Notes 
you don't know.)
