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.  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?
