I don't think there's any such thing in most states as an iron-clad
waiver. It can always be asserted that you did something so heinous that
you should be held financially liable, if not drawn and quartered.
My homeowner's insurance company wrote me a $25/year umbrella liability
add-on to my homeowner's policy that explicitly protects me from
liabilities arising from my tower, antennas, etc. My agent says that such
policies are normally written to include increased automotive liability
protection, and cost a lot more because of that, but if you specify
liabilities pertaining to homeowner's coverage only, the price comes way down.
And oh yes, I'm in WV - YMMV.
