[TowerTalk] Fiberglass life expectancy

I was thinking about building an LPD antenna and purchased some Strongwell 2" 
square fiberglass tubing about 7 years ago.  I never finished the project and 
the tubing has been kicking around the yard in the AZ sun since then.  I see no 
signs of degradation and it had no treatment whatsoever.

Contrast that to the fiberglass military mast sections that turn to hazardous 
waste in a year or so.
