Whoa, Easy, big fellah. With that attitude you'd wind up with LESS than
zero. THEY hold all the cards. THEY tell you what is possible. THEY levy
fines. THEY issue building permits.
YOU got squat.

I disagree with K7LXC on this one. The installation was performed in
with all laws in existance at the time. The city has no grounds to complain
now - "ex post facto" laws are prohibited by the US Constitution. Any
reasonably competent lawyer could have won this one half asleep. We need
to stop letting all these damn tin-horn dictators and busybodies restrict our
private property rights more and more each day. We're losing our rights
because we we're letting it happen.
