I want to put up a 60 foot tower at 32:47:30.797 N, 98:03:28.370. This is 1800
feet northeast of runway 13/31 at the Mineral Wells, Texas airport (KMWL). The
airport manager, K5MWL, told me that where I am located anything up to 75 feet
in height would be 'no problem'. I am concerned about the FCC rule about 1
foot of height for every 100 feet from the airport. I don't want to invest
time and money into the installation only to have the FAA/FCC tell me later
that I am in violation.
The way I read the FCC rule in Part 17 (17.6) of 47 CFR, I need to notify the
FAA and possibly get a waiver from them to present to the FCC. I don't fully
understand all this. Can anyone tell me what I need to do?
