    Looks like a beam to me. Not short wave, more CB or ham type antenna. Worth $$ to the right people providing it's in good condition. What do you want for it shipped to Omaha, Ne ?? I might be interested if the price is right. I’d want the rotor and all with it.

    Honestly, your best bet would be too find some local CBer and see what they'd offer. If you don't need the tower, sell it all together and let them take it down. Around here you’d get at least a couple hundred buck, probley a little more.

    Actually it looks like a cubical quad - does it have more then 1 wire running around the radials? If so it is a multi bander and definanately worth some money. The smaller antenna below looks like a 1/4 wave ground plane for VHF - might be 2 meter or could have been for a scanner.

    Ditch the CBer and see if there is a local ham club. They will know what it is for sure and might find a local buyer for the whole thing and take it down for you to boot!
