I purchased this tower from an individual in McAllen, Texas on March 22,2001. Lamar Grier and myself made the trip to Texas to pickup the tower and started back home with it on the 23rd.
We dug the footing on March 27th. We used a local "gravedigger" for the excavation. He even disposed of the excess dirt.
