    My son, who has done a lot of work on cell towers, has said that the monopole towers bend as the side facing the sun heats up and expands, bending the tower noticeably in the opposite direction. The guyed towers don't do that.

    Back in the late 70s and 80s I was getting $1.00 a foot plus hourly wages. Changed lights, installed and replaced antennas and cables. We built a few small towers but mostly left that to the heavy tower crews.

    In case you are from a part of the country where they don't have these giant electric windmills, and you wonder how they are transported and built, this is one of the blades from the biggest model of wind turbine electric generator… Northbound on interstate 45, with two other blades and a base tower section, in about a mile long convoy :-)
