http://www.co.tooele.ut.us/PDF/Land_Use/chapter4.pdf

Tooele county has 29 chapters covering land use. To view different chapters change the 4.pdf to another number. I looked at them all and had it search for amateur but found it only in chapter 28 where it states that this chapter does not pertain to amateur radio. With comprehensive land use rules they must have some for amateur radio antennas or perhaps they do apply the chapter 28 rules to amateur towers.

Or try this link:

In any event you will be subject to the airport height restriction. I would call the county at (435) 843-3160.

Hi call the county they where very kind but I am not sure if the are sure how to deal with that situation they told me if is more than 35 feet I need to summit the plans for a hearing and pay a fee that i think is either 300 or 400 dollars I guess they send letter to neighbors to see their concerns. to me after I read chapter 28 sound like they don't have rules that apply to ham radio but still is kind of obscure what to do and I meantion that to them so they where like mmmm .

How tall do you want your tower to be?

I ran an EZNEC model of a 14 MHz dipole at 35 and 50 feet above ground. At a take-off-angle of 5 degrees the difference in gain is 2.7 dB. While nearly 3 dB is significant I wonder if it's worth the cost of a taller tower, the permit, and the uncertain process. If you're not running an amplifier now you might consider a 35' tower and an amp.

I live in Stansbury Park with HOA antenna restrictions and partially compensate for a stealth antenna by running an amp. I work 160-10 meters with low band DXing being my favorite ham activity.

That sounds a lot like a variance process which for amateur radio, or specific accessory structures, may not apply at all.

Before you go jumping through a lot of hoops, read the code and understand specifically where *your* exact structure fits in.  Maybe contact a few hams in the area that have towers and learn what process they used to get their towers up.

Contact the Volunteer Counsel for Utah.  If anyone would know, he would.

Sounds like a perfect situation for a 35 foot crank up tower that can reach 50 feet when extended. Spend your money on the tower, not the hearing.  Wink
