I beat you 2 BUD 7.5 and 10 feets an oval 5 feet in my backyard plus about 10 around the town (i count fast here) ready to go down for the 
first taker and one huge aluminium 16 feet (My guess) just on a pole aside of an arena here..oups 2 more on a finance retaken building they 
sold all the contents even the old receivers in an auction but no one bid on the 2 BUB.

P.S it takes 2 days with one of my friend to take down 2 10 foot to the ground no crane or boom truck just industrial chain block and loose 
nuts oil torch bolt cutting grinder and a bit of luck in the decent phase...
