[TowerTalk] tower restrictions

I am fortunate to live in a city with what I consider the best of all 
possible views about amateur radio towers.

I suffered some storm damage to my tower this spring and was concerned I 
would have to at least partially take down and then reinstall it after 
replacing a tower section.

It took nearly a week to get an answer from the city planning people but 
the response was great....I was told the city had no regulations about 
amateur radio towers but I should check with the FAA since I  am only 3 
miles or so from DFW airport (I can see all the control towers from the 
top of my 60 ft tower).

That does not mean some inconsiderate builder can't tack on a CCR
