Another point I neglected to mention in my first reply was that the higher
the antenna the lower the RF exposure. Such idiocy on the part of local
authorities is one of the reasons I believe Congress saw fit to vest
exclusive jurisdiction on this issue in the FCC. You can file a petition
for declaratory relief on this matter with the FCC if you wish.
