There is an array not far from here of about a dozen tall wooden poles,
visible from a mile or two.  I've read that it supports a Sterba array.
Sorry I don't know the operator's call off-hand (now in his 90's).

I've read that his poles sit on top of concrete pads and are not anchored at
the base at all.

I'm not a pole guy, but I think many telephone poles are treated with
chemicals that might make them "hazardous waste" now.  When I was growing
up, I remembered they sure smelled pretty bad.  :-)
