I think this would be good, but i also think that they leve the law open to interpritation, as this would allow them to shut down some one that is pushing the limits of the law…
So that being said if you can get your local FCC agents to OK your design, your probably good.. but others may be in a diffrent area that will interprite it diffrently..
I know of many cases where the structure is a ground and they ground the antenna to it and its not counted.. But there may be the ocation with a FCC pighead thatsays well its a ground so you have to count it your out of compliance.. shut down.. I think you could fight it if you had the FCC actually describe the law more so we would have definate guidelines..
My vote for the safest ground would be a big pile of dirt..
I would loke to hear the fact that you could build a copper tower 20 or 30 feet tall and be legal… If i knew for sure that it was legal I would definatly invest the cash into it, but it being in a grey area.. makes it a couple hundread dollar bet.
