I have for sale a real nice MA40  with the MA40RB rotor base and earth
mount... No concrete needed if you've got a nice clay soil !  Also included
are the tilt over accessory with winch so you can lower it and work it on
the ground ( ! ) and a clean hand winch for raising and lowering the tubular
tower. Winch and raising accessory are removable when the tower's up if you
want. The rotor mounts UNDER the tower and turns the entire tower, rather
than being mounted at the top which makes it more prone to wind damage. ALSO
included are the Cushcraft A3S and AW3S antennas, used but working fine. A
couple of end caps need to be replaced on the coils, but that's pretty
inexpensive. 2 coax arms are also included. While the cable looks good, I'd
recommend that you replace it with new before you install the tower just for
your own peace of mind.

Antennas and all, this package retails for over $6,000 new (look it up!) but
it's availble here for $2,000 or best reasonable offer very near that. I
have a sturdy "rack" that I constructed and moved itall the way from Omaha
NE to Cleveland OH in a rental pickup truck from Enterprise. The heaviest
piece, the tubular mast, weighs about 275 pounds. I can get local kids to
help you load it for about $15 each, you work that out with the kids. (Or
bring you own muscle-men/women... I have a shoulder injury and cannot help
load it). I'll have the trck rack assembled and ready to slide into your
truck bed when you arrive, then the tower parts can be loaded. I recommend
4-6 crank-tight webbing load ties, they're 4 for $20 at Wallmart, etc. I'll
sell you mine or you bring yours. I DO NOT recommend ROPE for securing the
tower on the top of the truck bed rack that I've assembled.

Call 440-498-0799 with questions. This tower is in great shape with almost
no corrosion anywhere but on a few bolts. Tower and MA40RB are in excellent
