You are lucky that you are allowed to install a tower and having a 90 MPH
system is not a bad thing.

US Towers has the following statement on their web site: "Our dedicated
staff offers technical assistance and support for all of our valued
customers".   So they should be able to help you, assuming that their
mission statement is accurate.   Since they already make the MA-770 and
MA-850, which have larger bases, they should not have too much trouble
building a 55' tubular tower using this larger tubing that will meet your
wind requirements.

I think you are right.  I thought the hard part would be getting an
form our CCRs.  I was able to do that with not a big problem.  But I spent
minutes with the City Building Commission here in Plymouth, Minnesota and he
insisted on 90 MPH Wind Loading, 1/2 radial ice, with the antenna fully
extended (i.e. not nested).  He would not move off this position no matter
said.  I tried all kind of arguements like precedent installations,
etc. but he would not have any of it.

Not sure what my next move is.
