I won't argue with the specs or bang for the buck, but I don't understand
the statement about Trylon and "8 ft. pipe".  Maybe they've changed
something, but my Trylon did not have any "pipe" -- just 8  8-foot
sections, along with the 3 leg base (stubs) that go in the concrete.
My T600-64' is 64' tall -- or at least 62', accounting for overlap
where the sections join.

If I had it to do over again, I would be giving both Trylon an ANW
a serious look...

I've compared the specs. and prices of Trylon and AN Wireless towers (at least the light-duty ones for each brand) and found the prices to be similar for similar heights and wind loading. But when I consider that

1. The advertised height of the Trylon includes the 8ft. pipe (supplied), whereas the advertised height of the AN Wireless one is the height of the tower itself.
