Working for one of the "big three" tower companies I can tell you allot of
factors come in place.
Total ground space used up by them, rad height they will be (both antennas),
coax they use.
Not only just where you are geographically located.

Our club has been approached by a local company about the possibility of
installing a repeater (somewhere in the 150 mhz range) on our 180' tower.
Actually they want to place 2 antennas on it. In exchange for this they are
willing to install a propane emergency generator which would power the club
in event of power outages and provide high speed internet to us. They would
incur all costs. We haven't spoken to our attorney or anyone else but I
would like to know what other similar locations get in compensation for
tower space. In a mostly rural general location within the city limits of a
30,000 population area, how much could we really expect someone to pay for
tower space on our tower? Surely it would have to be more than the cost of
internet service a month.

Thanks Bill AD8P
