I'ts not my nickel, and not my tower.

I was told it was a 3 hour job with a 2 man crew by one of the tower
companies I got a quote from.   But they also charged me an additional 10
hours of travel time.  I understand the cost of a crew, but in each case,
the problem is not the time on the tower, it's travel - being 300 miles or
more away.

The rates I was quoted was 85/man/hr, which I thought were reasonable.

I was hoping there was just someone closer.    it sucks that travel is the
majority of the cost.
