Don't leave any room for surprises. New neighbor moves who hates antennas?
A peice of your antenna comes down and damages your house or your neighbors,
what do you tell your insurance? City adopts a new ordinance on towers?
all these issues would keep me up at night.
>Do you tell your neighbors that you are going to put up a tower, or do you
just do it?<
Never told my neighbors. Slowly told them more as I ran into them on the
street and was nice to them. Frankly, without a CC&R or intervening
ordinance, it's really not their business. After my MA550 base was dug I
walked over to a neighor who I had a good relationship with. I asked him if
he saw any problems with putting up a tower where it was; he replied "if
you've got a permit for it, it's your property, it's your business what you
do with your property". He went on, "besides, it looks a lot nicer than
that ugly dipole you up there before...!" I am sure he regreted that
statement when my satellite array when up..!!!
