I'm also in western WA and have seen lots of used and rusty tower for sale
around these parts. I found my TX-472 listed in the QRZ.com forum. The seller
was located in Porterville, CA where rainfall and humidity (and the resultant
rust) is low. Though 20 years old, it's still in top shape! Getting it here
was a simple matter of putting a listing on uship.com which is like ebay
except, the bids go DOWN.
After getting my permit issued late, and some other factors, I missed putting
up my tower last year. But, it looks like it'll happen in late spring. :)
