I picked up a used 48' Universal Aluminum for $80 and only used 38' of
that with ~4' in the ground. Right now only a Comet CX-333 resides on
it and that probally won't change since we're moving in a year.
In adition to the tower
Auger rental ~ $ 40
Sack-crete ~ $ 50
Misc hardware ~ $ 30
Antenna ~ $ 150
Feedline (LMR-400) and connectors ~ $ 75
Ground rod & clamp ~ $ 10
Old piece of 1/4" copper tubing and hose clamp for ground ~ $ 0
