Don't give up so easily...  Massachusetts is one of the states that has codified 
PRB-1 into state law, so your fight should be easier than in a state where one 
has to go thru the federal courts.  Does Holden have an antenna ordinance, and 
if so, what does it say?  What steps have you taken so far, and what has been 
the outcome?  Remember, the FCC & the courts have said that any "balancing test" 
is not allowed, arbitrary height limits do NOT meet the requirement of 
"reasonable accomodation" and "minimum practicable regulation", and under no 
circumstance can the municipality's actions have the effect of precluding 
amateur communication.

PS - your XYL is wrong:  if you don't fight for your rights, who will?
