This is a very specific question about guy wires and setback requirements
for towers in your town.  If you have no tower, you may ignore the rest
of this message.I am helping a ham try to erect a tower. We want to put
ONE guy wire within the town's 40 foot sideyard setback.  If your
building inspector allowed you, or someone you know, to do this, at a
present location, or a prior one, please tell me the name of the town (if
you really want to be helpful, please tell me the name and phone number
of the inspector).This is normally a matter of discretion by the building
inspector, and is not a matter which appears in a bylaw.  However, if
your town bylaw specifically allows guy wires to fall within the sideyard
or rear setback, the would be very interesting.Thanks.Fred Hopengarten
