Wonder when the stick will pass the Sear's Tower ROOF,, also 2000 ft may be a law in some places , But KVLY TV Mast near Fargo ND goes 2063ft.

If it was WAY out of plumb, they could have it hang over the edge and attach a ride, Vegas Stratosphere style!

I am only kidding. Probably the concrete base is the root cause, not the metal section.

If it is out of plumb, maybe they'll erect it like the old antenna was....with that noticeable kink in the middle. :/

What does out of plumb mean for those of us who don't know a ratchet from a screwdriver?

Not completely vertical/surface not completely horizontal, a few quarters of an inch at the base represent several inches/maybe a feet at the very top.

So is this going to cause any major delays? Hopefully not.
