You don't understand.. the 1000 foot tower (300 meters, actually) is to hold up my HDTV over the air antenna so I can receive signals from Mt. Wilson (some 20 mi to the East). There just happens to be a hill in the way that I have to look over.

I'm just glad that I can get dual use from the tower. Just slide that 200 foot vertical dipole on the top next to the HDTV panel.

It's an OTARD, after all...

My guess is that, for your location, your chief concern with a 1000 foot
tower would be right-of-way access for guy points.  Close behind in second

Finally, the justification I need for the building permit review board!... I
have to have that 1000 ft tower, or my feedline won't be adequately
decoupled, and there might be RFI.  I'm just trying to minimize the impact
on my neighbors.
