    Okay, I have until about the first of next month to move. This is always a pain and getting the the right place in the right area is one of the tasks that we as amateur radio operators have to be very careful of. So, I'm looking at craigslist and found what appears to be a moderately nice home in a good neighborhood.
    This is a look at the front of the house;

    Not bad and there's room in the back large enough for an RV. I don't have one but hey, room is room.
    Looking at the other pictures was okay. The reason it's here in this forum and not Rag Chew is because of this next picture;

    Anybody else see what I see?
    This could be a good move!!!
    Further details are forthcoming and I just hope this is what it appears to be.
    I may actually fall into it and come out smelling like a rose.
    Have fun

    Is that a Hazer I see? If so, may you be covered in that into which you fall. :D

    Update: looked at the outside and it's definitely a tower. A previous owner, not the current one, was an amateur radio op. There appears to be a ham shack in the backyard along with a garage.
    For the kids the school is not very good and that may be a problem.
    If there's a ham shack then I'm sure there'll be 240 to it.
    Did I just skip over the kids and revert back to amateur radio? Maybe!
    The yard is huge with loads of area for the pets and the kids. Do I need to mention antennas?
    A inside look is tonight at 6:30, stay tuned.

    Hey, what a find . . . !!!!! And you shouldn't have to worry about c&c's against towers, etc.

    I wonder where you'll be spending your free time . . . ???

    The kidz will acclamate to school.
    GRAB the house.

    Kids going to school: $ 5000
    New house: $ 10,000
    House WITH tower : PRICELESS !

    Boy I'd tell me you really love the place, but the tower has just "got to go" and make them knock something off for that!! :)

    I would be scared they would just go and knock it down and ask if the price was okay. :)
    I think I would not give any hint of being interested in the tower, unless they say something.
    If they do; ask about the local FM radio stations and express an interest in local Jazz and classical music stations.
