“(b) Except as otherwise provided herein, a station antenna structure may be erected at heights and dimensions sufficient to accommodate amateur service communications.”

a. Maximum height of each antenna: sixty-five feet from ground to top of antenna;
b. Maximum height of each support structure: two-thirds of height of antenna;
c. Maximum width of support structure: two feet on any side, and provided that no antenna shall protrude laterally beyond said support structure;
d. Maximum number of antennas: one;
