Looking for references/studies that give the predicted fall radius of a
tower when it fails - seems like I saw a message about that a few days
ago but it's been discarded since then. I think I saw a reference to
about 1/3 the height of the tower - is that right?
I'm trying to "help" the city come up with a proposed ordinance to
specifically cover amateur radio antennas, and that data would help
support a setback requirement of no more than 1/3 the height of the
And while I'm at it, if any of you know of and have access to ordinances
in your town that specifically cover amateur radio antennas, I would
appreciate seeing a copy. Please contact me if you have such info.
Thanks for any info - private e-mail is fine.
