Our local ordinance limits towers to 70 feet, unless a variance
is obtained, which (like in a lot of other locations) is a pain to
apply for and somewhat difficult to get. However, we are in
a built-up area (very little "open" land left in the town) and I
don't think the height limitation is unreasonable here.
Nearby areas have experienced rapid growth, which is beginning
to spill over into my area. Knowing that a new "comprehensive
plan" was being considered, along with the likelihood of revised
zoning regulations, I opted to run for a seat on the town council.
Fortunately (?) I won.
Of course I will ensure that ham antennas are reasonably
