That reminds me of a few years ago when someone rang the doorbell, and it
turned out to be a CB'er inquiring about my 127' tall 160m base-insulated
vertical tower. He told me he had been noticing that tower for a couple of
years, and that there was no antenna on it. He was wondernig if I would
give the tower to him if he agreed to take it down.
I hesitated for a moment, and pretended to be thinking about it, then
replied, "No, I don't think I'll get rid of it just yet. Might decide to
put an antenna up there someday."
