just about 1 hr. ago, my dad, neighbor, and i disassembled a 25 ft. radio tower. the cost FREE! the house with the tower had a cb'er living there. he moved a few years ago, left the tower/antennas. a cool lady moved in soon thereafter. after a few weeks of debate in my head and an a-ok by my dad, i just walked over to her house and asked if i could purchase it from her. i explained that i am a ham radio op. and explained my intentions, and she had no plans for it's future use. she said she'd think about it, and 3 days later (tonight) she came over and said okay. all i had to do was remove the wasp's nest from the top, disassemble, and carry it home. everybody walked away safely and i am ahead one tower. you'll never know until you ask.
