Seems to me that six acres is a fairly decent amount of property for neighbors 
to find complaints about.  I am assuming that the siting would still fulfill 
setback provisions, etc., thus
the only complaints would be perceived/subjective visual pollution.  I can hear 
the complaints now if a cell tower was to be put up as once again, the 
ininformed insist that the laws of
physics can be violated.  Then too, the objections could be easily rationalized 
away - it all depends on whose ox is being gored.
