As usual Dennis does not know what he is talking about.

I have been through the City/Antenna Battles in San Diego and won.

PRB1 and the California Version do have legal basis and can be used.
While you have a legal basis, attitudes towards antennas do vary greatly between cities
Some such as San Diego and Poway have become  very accommodating NOW
Some are hostile

Ultimately the city can't reject the antenna tower outright but rather they must "Reasonably Accommodate YOUR NEEDS"
However Reasonably Accommodate is very vague so if a City digs in its heels you must be prepared to fight them
Which unfortunately get be very expensive.
From my experience if you show the City that you will continue the fight and never back down, you will win
If not, you will lose.

Sorry I don't have experience with Santa Barbara

PRB1 is a toothless ineffective dog and hoax perpetuated by the ARRL

If you want to be screwed out of 10 grand - hire Hopgarten
