From: ARS W5OMR 

So, "adjacent to" could mean on the same property that which is occupied by a building or structure. Up to 200' on your 10 acre lot should be sufficient,  right?

>   5. Towers that are excluded are those: (a) “adjacent” to a house, barn, electric utility station, or other building; (b) within the curtilage of a farmstead; (c) which support electric utility transmission or distribution lines; (d) wind-powered electrical generators with a rotor blade radius that exceeds 6 feet; or (e) street lights erected or maintained by a Federal, State, local, or tribal entity.
