The tower is a little weathered, but seems solid. The dish is 1 piece steel, weathered but good shape structurally speaking. The LNB was removed, the mount is rusted but solid, and there is a actuator arm about 3 feet long attached (unknown if functional).
Free! I'd be there in a heartbeat for the tower. Would have to take a closer look at the dish.
I'd hire a crane to pluck that tower. One cllimb to secure the harness. Otherwise, many, many hours of dis-assembly in the air with several guys roping stuff down. A crane op could pluck it in 15-20 minutes and gently lay on the ground for a quick break-down.
Get the tower!!! That looks to be Rohn 25G tower. Rohn 25G has 8 horizontal steps per section. It also looks to have the Rohn roof top base mount. The top section is 9 feet and they make several different versions of top section. Rohn 25G is very good tower, and you can free stand 40 feet without guy wires in enough concrete per Rohn factory specs. The antenna wind load, or number of antennas will determine if you need to guy it or not. Get everything for free you can! Yes I think you found the honey pot!
Put it this way, I paid $450 for my 25G tower. I bought 5 full sections and a top section (59 feet) with a Yeasu rotor, rotor plate, hinge base plate. and a PDL-2 quad. GET IT NOW!!! LOL
Oh, I'm snagging it hopefully this weekend. Talked to the homeowner, and he's holding it for me due to rain this past weekend. I'm still trying to arrange transport for the dish. I'm kinda a newbie to the whole radio/sat area, but having worked EMS/Fire for a decade and now work IT, when I saw this ad, my jaw about dropped. I called the guy 3 or 4 days after he posted it, just out of morbid curiosity figuring someone would have already snagged it all up. The timing couldn't be better since I'm working on moving out to my buddies place in the country so I can pay off some bills and help him and his wife with the property upkeep. I almost have him convinced to let me build a nice little cabin at the top of the hill for me to stay in and mount the gear to. They have sat internet and the connection sucks and is expensive. Apparently rural residential fiber stops about 1/4 of a mile up the road at his neighbors place. He about crapped when I told him we could have another connection run to their neighbors or share theirs and then to a point-to-point wireless bridge. He asked me if you could do it that far and I replied with that I have a $350 WiFi bridge set that goes from the top of my work to across the parking lot and they had a range of 2+ miles.
