JB made some good points in his post, but it brings up a question for me.

This brings up a question:  If it is 1.5 times the height for clearance, 
there are a number of commercial towers and cell towers locally that 
appear if they went over they'd hit the power lines.  These are both 
free standing and guyed, in town, and the country.
