An Arrow for the Quiver of Municipalities and Neighbors Opposing Amateur Radio Tower Antennas | Land Use and Zoning

RT @TonyVerwey: Have a neighbor applying for an outsized and excessive amateur radio tower antenna?


The antenna height issue rolls on.  Here’s a statement from a prominent law firm that is offering local governments a way of fighting amateur radio operators who “seek to install not just an antenna, but a tower antenna of 100 feet or more in height…this is cause for concern and frustration for municipalities and neighbors in higher density suburban settings.”  This law firm has found a way to use the limited FCC PRB-1 preemption rule against amateur radio operators, who erect “outsized and excessive antenna towers.”  The only people who will benefit from the continuing debate will be attorneys prosecuting amateur radio operators.  Despite some antenna tower victories in California and other states, amateur radio antennas are still the target of people who consider towers a nuisance and a detriment to local real estate values. Perhaps, it’s time to go into “stealth mode” and think of more creative ways to avoid HOAs and CC&Rs.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
