    No kidding. I thought I was going to get good cheap  tower and antenna 
system up when I picked up a used BX tower in so-so shape for  $150.00 (this was 
in 1980). It was the first and last BX I'll ever refurbish -  another story.
    By the time I was on-the-air with the used cubical  quad, I was into it 
for almost $1200. So much for my inexpensive system!
