Thanks, Steve. I know what you mean about it seeming like they make up the
rules as they go along. Neither of the two guys I spoke to in the country
building department had ever heard of amateur radio and assumed I was
planning to put up a cell tower or radio station tower on my property.
The worst news coming out of my visit to the county office was them telling
me I live in a section of the county under the jurisdiction of a special
planning commision and have to apply for a use permit before I can even
apply for a building permit. This requires a $500 fee (which may increase if
the planner takes more time to work through the details), site visit,
notification of neighbors, etc., and will take at least two months. Then, if
they approve, I can apply for a building permit. :-(
