[TowerTalk] Towable towers available from the government

My FAA comment was facetious as I am almost 30 miles from the nearest small 
airports in various directions.  Most likely I will be putting a tower up 
over 100 ft but not over 200 ft.  I wonder what the rules are for a 
temporary antenna structure (wires and weather balloons.)

I can't speak for other items in your area, or state tall structured
acts (we have them in Michigan) but if you are more than 5 miles from
any registered airport and your height above average terrain is 200 feet
or less the FAA is not normally interested.  Depending on runway
alignment and tower height, you can even get closer,
