Marchand v. Town of Hudson, 788 A.2d 250 (N. H. 2001)

Synopsis: The town zoning administrator granted the ham radio operator
builder a permit to erect three 90-foot amateur radio towers. The builder's
neighbors appealed the grant of the building permit. The town zoning board
upheld the grant, but was overturned by the trial court.  The supreme court
held that ham radio towers are an allowed use, and remanded to the zoning
board with orders to considered what steps had been taken to reasonably
accommodate the builder's amateur radio communications, because federal
regulations required that such accommodations be made.

So Jerry - what happened after that?  Seem like the zoning board got one
more shot at you, or did they leave it alone since they had originally
approved it?
