I was wondering about the feasibility of having a 25 to 30 foot telephone pole 
installed to use as a tower.  Probably with a pulley at first to hoist various 
dipoles then later install a small yagi and rotor.  I have several trees that 
approach 20 feet, but the tops are not very sturdy to hoist antennas.  There 
are many powerline poles in the area and farm lights mounted on poles.  I was 
thinking a pole might be a lower profile way to get started then installing a 
traditional tower given the number of poles already present.  Has anyone used 
poles for antenna support in place of a tower?  Thanks, Ken, N0VZ
