I'd have to take this ( ) through 3 sets of 
guys.  It's 30 feet from the top of the tower to the top antennas which 
have now been up just shy of 9 years.  The only problems have been the 
LMR-400 UltraFlex pigtail jackets which have split and are now 

BTW IIRC each guy anchor weights just shy of 20,000 #

I'll be 70 in just 2 more months. I was up there yesterday. My only 
problem climbing is getting back in shape along with arthritis, but the 
climbing is good for me. Hurts like the devil though.

Were I going to put up another tower (If I wind the lottery or buy the 
right stock) I'd put up a heavy duty crank up, similar to that monster 
that's been at Dayton the last two years, but 100-120 feet would be 
plenty as long as it'd hold the antennas. Course if I won the lottery 
I'd probably move and need two of those big monsters along with some 
smaller ones....and a couple of new amps and rigs.
