Absolutely. It's war time in Concord. Joe may not have the best case to fight
it out over, however. He only wants a small (very small) tower. The last
application that was turned down was for a 24' free standing tower. We need to
apply for a 72' + tower and fight that one. Then everyone with equal or more
modest aspirations will benefit. There are approximately 400 hams in Concord.
Joe is pretty depressed right now, but I think he will be back. In any event,
there will soon be a war chest fund established to put this flagrant violation
of individual rights (not to mention PRB-1) where it belongs. The Concord
planning commission will be begging us to put up 24' towers before this is
over. They made a big mistake by being so unreasonable.
