In the first place I don't know how they think they can stop or deny you the right to do business.
And if you are in the unlicensed bands they're isn't anything they can do about it. PERIOD

Been there done that. Hampton wanted to run injunctions against me from building my tower and etc.
I went right ahead and did it anyways. And there wasn't anything they could do about it. Yea I had
to visit with the FCC and the FAA before it was all a done deal. But I got it done none the less.

If it makes you feel better find a damn good lawyer outside of your community and have a nice
letter wrote to them letting them know your going to do business there and it they so much as try
to stop or hinder your business you'll be suing the pants off them.

So I'd find a way to get something in the air and start pumping.

Keep in mind you'll be on everybodies $hit list. At least for awhile.
