I know I posted on this one before and I don't recommend more than 40 or 50 
feet of freestanding 55.

However..........One of the local WISP guys had a tower with around 90 feet 
of 55 attached to his shop with a house bracket at around 10 feet, which left 
80 feet freestanding.  On it he had four runs of hardline, several omnis, and a 
directive array for 2.4 gHz.  After Charlie and Frances came through the area 
with around 75 MPH I expected 900 pounds of tower to be horizontal.  To my 
surprise, it was still standing after both storms.

God watches over children and fools!
