A good friend took one down in Massachusetts after 8 or 9 years, and there 
was so much fatigue damage to the boom (cracking, etc.) that the 
professional tower guy doing the work advised him just to junk it.  Sounds 
as if mileage varies all over the place, though the differences could also 
reflect rolling changes in the antennas themselves, depending on when they 
were produced.
