        Please get an attorney to help before you go under and take the next
few hams with you. You need to have objective and skilled help. You need to
make a record that could be used in a court action and let the City know
that at an early stage.
        Packing the room with hams has some limited benefits, but one or two
well-spoken supporters is usually enough. Tie in the public service
activities of ham radio in the county/city.
        Insist on compliance with PRB-1 which prohibits denial of an
effective antenna. Get the PRB-1 document and a letter into the record now.
