Joe should not have to be going thru this type problem for any amateur radio
tower under some reasonable limit (at least 50', better yet 70'). There
must be a California based attorney/ham
who can go after cities such as Concord, CA. Jim N4UCK did it around metro
Atlanta including the famous N4NX case.
geez 33' is not worth the problem....I would have gone the 89' route. If
the Concord, CA commission can rule regardless of law then they are run by
mob not by law. Here in Georgia
they would have been sued in court by aggressive developers AND LOST!
Its too bad the FCC is under such fire that it has almost gotten to the
place where they are only administrators...Concord certainly does not comply
Joe, don't let a no at the meeting be the end unless you want to pack up and
73, Dave K4JRB
