Just thought I'd figure out what it would cost me to duplicate my tower
today, and pass it along. I have 108 ft of Rohn 25, which I bought used.
Figuring on the high side...
11 sections Rohn 25 used including flat top section
Concrete base plate (new shipped)
1000 ft 3/16 guy cable shipped (new)
21 guy insulators @ $6
3 guy anchors (8 inch galv I beams from local highway fence
Ready Mix concrete (wild guess 100 bags @$2.50)
Note this does not include, rotor, thrust bearings, rotor shelves, mast,
antennas, cable, doctor bills or medication! JACK W1WEF
