There is a wiband tower in Greenridge too which is 5.8 mile as the crow
flies.  By the time it's all said and done though, that appears to be about
a $3000 project for the privilege of paying their billing every month.  That
seems unreasonable.

Or does someone have an "in" with a free standing 60' - 80' tower and
installation info. that might make the project more reasonable?
