    I wish! I am on oil out my way. I would love to have natural gas.

      Now that you say there is a rope in there i'd bet its a pull rope left in there for future electric or hvac line set as was said. Was the previous owner a Ham? Maybe he had planned to pull some coax for antennas in thoere. In my last home that i had built i had a 4" conduit run from thr base of the tower into the nearest corner of the basement, only about 30 feet. I didn't want any cables strung overhead. This made for a better looking and for better survivability of the antenna system in bad weather. The tower was an 80 footer and i had hf beams, vhf and uhf beams, plus a thi-band verticle on top which brought the total height to 117 feet. Anyway, the conduit was great and it let me run additional lines for a wx station and other systems later on.
