What we were discussing Sunday seemed to be basically putting up
low scattered towers around town.  If you can't see a 100' tower
from the ground or roof of your apt, you will very likely be able
to see it from your *own* 100' tower =)

Stephane, do those arial photos have enough information to generate
a height/topo-map of CU including trees and houses?

Cool!  With appropriate prodding I can get another before the next
meeting I'm at (three Sundays hence).
