Why in the world would one put up an antenna/tower that close to a power
line. (Hello, Darwin .....).

Good point. However, one needs to consider this in a broader sense. Many
amateur radio towers are installed close enough so if they fell over, they
could strike power lines. Likewise, wire antennas strung from them become
and blow around eventually landing on multi-KV lines
Anytime we had a big blow come through, before operating I always to a peak
outside to see if any of the wire antennas happened to be in close proximity
to the power lines.
