No legal height.
Apply for planning permission for a 100ft tower.

It might be an idea to mention (low) duty cycle of transmitter, exemption (I presume) from SAR/ICNIRP regulations based on low ERP etc, or you'll get the crazies who think you're going to give them cancer with your 2kW 7G microwave backhaul or something (OK, I wouldn't want that pointing right in my bedroom either FWIW). Having been on councils, I'm much more sympathetic to applications that don't hide info. Just my opinion..

Let's be honest, what we all really want is a huge erection (sorry, couldn't resist) :lol: :lol: :lol:
The perfect face for radio.
