Have you considered treated wood phone-power type poles.
A guy said he can put up a 40 foot pole for a mere $700,replete
with foot pegs starting about 8 feet up to allow me to climb it,
but not the marauding children that terrorize my neighborhood.

You could mount a vertical or two on top, and run a couple of
wire antennas off it.  Add a light, and it is a light pole,
that incidentally has a couple of ham antennas on it.  You
would not run the light when running the rig.

Just my take.  /////////   Richards - K8JHR  ////////////
