I spent a few YEARS negotiating with the FAA on my towers
and they said something to the effect that the actual height
for which lighting is required is a variable. If someone wanted
to put up a 300ft tower in the middle of the desert, they would
review the application and might not require lighting.
The "certain height" you mentioned is a variable that is site
I have a lot of horror stories about why it took years to get my
issues settled (in my favor) but I would recommend staying away
from the FAA if at all possible.
