How is the ordinance worded? Park Township's (near Holland, MI -- but 
it's not the municipality in which I live) ordinance refers, I am told, 
to the height of the "tower." Thus some hams have argued that the mast 
they have protruding from the top of the tower doesn't count. I don't 
know whether that interpretation has ever been put to the test.
