Yes, due to the cost of tower rent.  I don't mind paying the rental amount 
due to the excellent location on the ocean, but if I'm going to be stuck 
with mediocre performance on the upper bands to anything short of half-way 
around the globe, then the install costs + ongoing rent may not be worth it.

But as Dennis points out, at some time, on some bands, to some locations,. 
the performance will range from average to excellent -- it's just that I 
won't be able to control the elevation profile without stacks or with 
adjustable tower height.

Thanks to all who have replied!
