RE: [aprssig] Re: Hill top tower sites for sale

I've actually been working on a project like this for about a year.  To
buy the 300' tower, an appropriate equipment shelter, etc is the easy

Liability insurance will kill most of these projects...and may end up
being the death of mine. Lloyds of London wouldn't do it... 

Things need to cool off in telecommunications and especially in
insurance (Sept 11, 2001 didn't help) and then it may get much easier.

Also be aware of the FAA regulations, registration requirements, etc
that will all demand attention...

A good investment?  Absolutely!  Worth the effort?  Your decision.

Considering a local firm here in Sioux Falls wants $100 a month for
antenna space on one of their sites, it seems to me that a well-placed 
tower site purchased for $20,000 may actually be able to break even in a

few years, provided you leased tower space to commercial ventures.  Of 
course there would be insurance, property and other taxes, and probably
whole mess of other problems I haven't considered...
