Submission + - Council wants to remove 10 year old radio tower (

zeronode writes: In a stunning move of WTF, the Mt. Pleasant, Wi village council wants to force a 10 year old to remove his HAM radio tower. "Just days after a 10-year-old boy won an award for his ham radio contributions, his parents are worried local regulations will force them to take down the backyard tower he uses to communicate." Both Wisconsin and the FCC have laws saying the council can't force the family to take the tower down, but hey, who needs to play by the rules, right?
