Hi, Kyle --
The good news is that each of those counties (in fact just about the
whole state) is rated at 70 MPH which is the lowest rating that the TIA-222
gives. Be advised that there are sites that nonetheless will be subject to
higher winds (i.e. good ham locations) so check with the local building
department to see where they are. They are based on the ASCE 7-88 wind map.
BTW, your installation is one of the most competitive one tower setups.
Have fun from the Black Hole - at least there's no aurora in Ohio - hi.
