One thing that I didn't mention is that my house is 1/2 block from the highest point in the city (less than 8 feet in elevation) and it is basically "downhill" in all directions. My top antenna, on my main tower, is 67 feet above ground and is visible from the freeway about a mile away.
Since I have lived in this house longer than anyone else on the street all have purchased their houses knowing that the antennas are there. Several neighbors have told me that if I every sell the house I have to leave the towers! It seems the towers are the landmark by which they tell people how to find their house!
