I used 32' of fiberglass sections to support a K9AY loop, guyed in one place 
about 24 feet up.  It's very sturdy once up and should be OK if sufficiently 
guyed, but I don't know how you'd stand 68' up without snapping like a twig.  
You'll need some coordinated help, or a cherry picker.

One of my summer antenna projects is to put up two 40m dipoles in an inverted V 
arrangement perpendicular to each other. I'd like the apex of the V to be a 
half wave length above the ground, so a little over 68 feet. What can be used 
for a support for something like this? Can the 4 foot aluminum/fiberglass mast 
sections available on eBay be used at that height (guyed of course)? That would 
be about 17 or 18 of those sections, not sure how stable that would be. Other
