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..!!!
