OK, now here's what ya do.

The guys here at work are giving me the business about having a shiny new ham radio operators license and I must admit they are pretty funny.

"You need a tower," said Rufus. "Just set the damned thing up in your front yad, about 17 feet tall, and to add insult to injury put a little ring of rocks painted white around it and plant a single geranium on each side of it to be able to say you've landscaped it to hide it."

"Yeah," said Joey. "Ya got to make it look like you made a vague attempt to make it look like you're trying."

"I got a great idea!" said another guy. "The Official bastion of redneck lawn decorations! The INSIDE OUT TIRE FLOWER!!"

"Yeah. Complete with 54 coats of cracking white paint." interrupter Rufus. "Get a big truck tire and use the mast as the centerpiece. Put the tower up in the middle of it and a pink flamingo oneither side!"

"Or a nice little circle of rocks painted white!"

"Paint the tower some pretty pastel color like muave or lilac!" Another county heard from. "A nice 150 foot lilac colored tower."

It went on a bit and I let it ride until it ran itself out, which is the smartest thing to do in a case like this.

Of course, there will be no tower, but we can't let the truth get in the way of a chops bustin' now, can we?
