But, if you haven't already, get a copy of their tower regulations and read
them for yourself? Before moving to my qth I went to perhaps 25
towns/cities to determine where I wanted to move. Often the individual
planners didn't really know what the regulations actually were. But they
always took the hard-nosed interpretation of them.
