Maybe not! I know of a welding shop (in my locality... central
California) that will do welding jobs pretty cheaply. I think they
have a minimum job cost of $30, and that's for 1/2 hour. An
experienced welder can do a LOT of welding in 1/2 hour!
A bit of shopping for welders in your area may be worthwhile.

Will take your advice and ask around.
Will also have a close look at the condition of the tower
overall, and ask the welder to do the same, my guess is that
a competent welder can observe points of stress.
Thanks! & 73, doc kd4e
