Hi Scott -
Great idea, but in DC good luck with the Zoning Boards. Anything more than
12-feet over a rooftop needs a permit, and below 12 feet over is still in the
gray area depending on how the rules are interpreted and how visible the
antenna is from street level.
You might want to include a big batch of cookies for all the neighbors along
with the rest of the hardware. If you see any grannies with clipboards
sniffing around, you'll also need a legal reserve fund. Maryland is easier.
p.s. Hans - I would hold off on the moving trucks
