it seems the rate is very variables.
I think the owners in "my" case just want not to be ripped off. They
are smart enough to know that having and providing access to an antenna
on their roof is going to cost them something, that the roof itself is
an asset that must be paid for and maintained, and that the carrier is
getting a benefit from use of the roof. Those factors(plus a wish for a
modest profit and an awareness that their roof is in no way unique in
this area) will inform the price they ask for.
