    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I know this isn't the Buy sell trade forum, but I figure I will get better mileage in Ontario..


Does anyone know where I can locate a triangular antenna tower (tv, light commercial tower, etc) in the GTA (ideally) or Golden Horseshoe area - for a good price? (or free) It can be a used tower. Looking for around 25-40+ feet. If someone knows of a standing tower, I have a few friends with tower experience who can remove it as well.

Google, Craigslist and Kijiji have very limited results. Durham Radio and Radioworld don't even seem to sell these.. All they carry now is monopole towers, which won't work for my application.

Thanks all.

Got lucky about three weeks ago. Went to a yard sale with my wife and found two ten foot sections for $10 each. I've been checking the papers since.

Thanks all, I got a reply to one of my online ad's (kijiji)

Also the "ontario swap shop" has changed to a new site- and to register you "have" to have a legit ham callsign.. (fail)

Try looking in older neighbourhoods. My hood still has quite a few towers and many other hoods around me. They could use some tlc from being weather beaten, and they are still standing even from some of the wild windy weather we've been getting. The average height would be about 3x10 ft triangle tower + 10 ft spire/mast. Try knocking on some doors, my guess is some people may want to get rid of it but just don't know who to call.
