Hello everyone,

I have been saving for my first tower and would appreciate any advise or recommendations anyone has on the matter.

I was looking at a self support tower, 40' tall made by Universal Towers.  I was going to use the B-22 base which would allow me to add a few sections later if needed to gain a bit of height and keep decent wind load.  

I was concerned with the fact that these are aluminum and am not sure how they will hold up.  Would I be better of with a Rohn tower or similar?

For background... I have no room for guying and will be placing a wifi dish antenna with 2 sq ft loading and a 12 elem 2 meter beam.

If anyone has any suggestions, I would be grateful to hear them.
