I don't know that Array Solutions still carries the 80m vertical.  ZeroFive 
Antennas  sells one that looks very 
similar to the Array Solutions freestanding vertical for $2200.  I built a 
54' freestanding vertical at P40A for considerably less.   For K1TTT's 
installation, I would consider using 3" diameter aluminum tubing guyed at 
two levels.  The larger top sections will improve the bandwidth and I think 
it's a strong antenna than can be built for a reasonable price.  I believe 
that K4JA built his 80m 9 circle vertical array this way.

I believe that Array Solutions also has full sized 80m verticals.
