> My insurance agent told me that the tower is considered an "accessory
structure" -- same as "appurtenant (auxiliary?) structure???? -- IF it
is "attached to" the building. The "attachment" may be nominal but
cannot be merely the electrical connections.
A customer of mine in W6-land had a piece of plumbers tape (that
soft metal with holes in it) attached with a hose clamp to the tower leg and
nailed to the side of the house so that made it legally "attached".
Yes, it's an accessory structure. Read Ray's article and be
enlightened. He also wrote the Insurance chapter in my UP THE TOWER book. He
