Hi Mike,

It depends on what you want from your antenna system.  If you have the room,
put up multiple towers/antennas.  Different heights can make all the
difference.  If you want great performance stateside a lower antenna will
help.  Same for the carib and central America.  If you watch The topband
reflector you will see the guys with multiple antennas talking about
vertical mornings and skewed paths.  The more antenna options you can have
without seriously degrading performance of existing antennas, the better.
Look and see if you can retain what you have and put up that 70 footer.
