I'd be scared to climb one of those, with the section of the tower weighing less than I do. I wonder how strong they are from the perspective of climbing safety. For example if a fall takes a direction jult to the cross member tied off to?

Just came across these.  They look pretty neat.

If I get a chance I am going to see what a 90 footer costs.  If anyone 
else calls before I do, post it here so we can all see the price on 
these bad boys.

Hello all,

I'm getting ready to put up my first tower (finally found a place 
where there weren't any existing towers available) and would like to 
get some comments from others about whether I am doing the right things.

My goal is to mount a 2' PacWireless 5Ghz dish, a 3' PacWireless 5Ghz 
dish and 13db PacWireless H-pol Omni antenna at the 80 foot level.

The tower site used to have a very large radio tower on it, so the 
base and guy points are all still in place.  The base has a single pin 
in the center, and the guy anchors are 90' out at 120 degree intervals.

My intention is to put up a Rohn 45 equivalent tower - 8 sections and 
a 5' base section for a total of 85' of tower; two sets of guy points 
- one at 40' and another at 80'.  The antennas will mount right above 
the guy wires.

Here are some of the questions that I have:

1)  Should I use a flat base or an angled base (single pin)  There is 
already a pin in place from the old tower, but I don't know whether it 
makes sense to use it or just put a flat base with new anchors in.

2)  Does it make sense to put a hinged base at the bottom, assemble 
the tower and raise it with a winch -- or should I use a gin pole to 
put it together?

3)  I have not ordered my tower pieces yet.  New costs look to be 
about $3200 for 8 10' sections, base, 2 guy brackets, 1000' of guy 
wire, guy wire ground kit and 6 turnbuckles.  Am I missing anything on 
this list?  Does anyone have this sort of thing laying around that 
they would like to sell?  I'm just looking for some recommendations as 
to whether this is the right price range.

Thanks for your assistance guys!
