This is positively the last you will hear from me on this subject ! I
thought that Dave ( W0FLS ) said that he had had his tower up for two years
. During construction of his house and tower, he had had building
inspectors come on his site to inspect his house and had asked about the
tower ? Being told from county inspectors that there was no need for such a
permit, no laws on the books. Then two years later , someone shows up
saying he needs a permit for said tower and engineering data ! Right ?
I fully understand the reason why such permits and CC & R's are in
I just can't understand how the county can change the laws and then go
around looking for folks ( such as Dave ) who never received the permit
because there was no law at that time requiring one. He even made a point
of asking about it and was told he did'nt need one. Yes , $62.00 is very
cheap to get someone off your back. But where to we draw the line ? Also
gang, if you knew me , you would know that some of my posts to reflectors
is meant with a little humor, lifes to short to be so serious all the time.
So look for the smiley faces in my posts. That indicates something I
thought was funny !
Also the comments by Steve , K7LXC, were very true. It's sad that we
given away some ( not all ) of our property rights to the counties , so
that they can regulate us to death ! But no one want's a junk yard next
door do they ? All you guys made sence , its a tough battle. No one said
life was easy did they ??? :-) See , there's that smiley face !!! :-)
Ok .....now onto tower talk !!!! Great list BTW !! Just FYI , I'm
to be putting up a tower soon . And appreciate all the great brains out
there giving helpful tips and tricks to getting up a good system. I've got
ten flat acres for the "farm". Am I going to check for a building permit ?
As they say in Idaho ..... " You Bet" !!! :-)
