Ok the "idiot" light just went on over my head. What does stories
have to do with it? Just measure from the base to the roof, minus
any radio antenna or any thin superstructures on the top that could
dilute the meaning of an absolute height. What gives dude? There
is surely an interesting/weird historical bit here I never learned in
my reading..enlighten me please.
