Firstly, I apologize for this seeming like an ad. I am a lurker of sorts on
the list. I soak in all the info and post very rarely. I have several
buddies who are HAMs.

    We are a small Tower/Climbing crew with reasonable rates and flexible
rates (one of my more recent jobs we traded our time and labor for some
rohn25 tower).

    I also know quite a few climbers throughout the country so if anyone
needs someone closer for a very small project post here and maybe we can
make a recommendation.
