Route 1, Northern Maine, near New Brunswick border.

Self-supporting tower and shack included!  3.2 acres, $39.9K.  If I were 
looking for a spot to build a retirement home, or had any reason to move to 
that part of Maine, I'd consider it myself.  You could take down the 
microwave dishes and build a transmitter building right on top of the 
tower - no feedline needed.  Betcha could even build an 80m yagi that would 
withstand ice storms on top of that thing.

Or lay out radials and feed the whole tower as a fat shunt-fed vertical. 
>From the map and photos, (assuming the tower is  located in the middle) the 
property is just about exactly the right size for quarter-wave ground plane 
for 160, and the tower looks to be about 120 ft. tall.

Right now, real estate is a buyer's market.
