Towers in Columbia city limits?
I'm wondering what experiences you've all had getting towers put up within the city limits of Columbia. At my old house in NE Columbia I just put things up without asking the city. I built a W7VU style 30ft tilt-over mast that worked wonders. Now I'm right in the middle of town in a valley (Bluffdale Drive, just off Old 63 near Broadway). I want to do things the "right" way. Luckily I have no HOA to worry about and my wife doesn't care. I just need to do right by the city and for insurance.
I'd love to put up a freestanding foldover crankup mast or tower. US Towers MA-40 or MA-550 looks real attractive. That's the sort of thing I have in mind...
Any thoughts? Experiences with getting permission from the city? Thanks,
