> Hi Stu,
> The zoning officer in my town sent me a letter yesterday along with the
> pertinent ordinance telling me to remove my antennas (because of a
> neighbor's complaint) because they were more than fifteen feet above
> the roof which my R-5 sitting on top of my TA-33 on a roof tower
> clearly is. At the very least I was prepared to remove the
> R-5...definitely not the beam! If anything, with the R-5 off.... I had
> room to RAISE the beam.
> Then, I downloaded the FCC's PRB-1 ruling from the ARRL's web site and
> personally handed it to the zoning officer the next day saying ..."My
> attorneys gave this to me to give to you and I believe that this FCC
> ruling superceeds the township ordinance." She doubted it and said
> she'd give it to the township attorney for review. That was yesteday.
> At 10 AM today I received a call from her (the zoning officer) and she
> said that she read the PRB-1 ruling and that she believed "I WAS RIGHT.
> THE ANTENNA COULD STAY UP. SHE WOULD CALL THE COMPLAINANT AND TELL
> THEM... IF THEY WANTED TO... TO TAKE THE MATTER UP WITH THE FCC."
> I further told her that even without the PRB-1 ruling I was within the
> letter of the ordinance because the ordinance specifies the my antennas
> can be no higher than fifteen feet above the highest structure within a
> 500-ft radius. Now, that distance is at the very least a block. Behind
> my house other homes rise almost twenty feet in elevation since I sit
> at the bottom of a hill. I have the topo survey maps to prove it.
> So I won on that issue too! Whoopie!!!!!
> I also mentioned that since I'm a very reasonable person... (especially
> since I won), that I would be very happy to discuss this calmly with
> the complainant. The linear is warming up as I write!
