Cell tower income is the best way that you can go green. Sorry Mr. Gore. With all the extra cell tower rental income that you'll have coming in you can spend all the extra time you have saving the planet. But before that happens, you need to successfully negotiate a cell phone tower lease agreement. Probably a good idea to speak with a Telecom Lease Genius at our company...
But seriously, so many of our visitors contact us about putting a cell tower on property that they own or ask us how to get a cell site on their building on land. You know who you are, the person who called our toll free number 20 times after they pressed "Option-1" .
I want a cell tower on my property as much as anyone else but obviously not every site is going to work from a number of different perspectives. Therefore we've put together a brief cell tower site selection guide below. Gathering the following information and meeting these criteria will improve your chances of generating cell tower income on your site.
TerraServer is a great resource where you can plot your address and see what the topographical map shows as your elevation. The brown lines will show a number, which is how many feet you are above sea level.
The coordinates, height and elevation will give most radio frequency engineer the information that they need to see what a tower at 150', 125' or 100' would cover for them.
There you go. Congratulations!! You now know more than 99% of Americans who do not have a cell tower on their property, and virtually every wireless lease consultant in San Deigo, California.
Even with all of the information that you have, most of you probably still don't know where to start or are simply too busy to invest a lot of time into promoting your site.
If you feel that your property would be a favorable site for wireless development you should search your local Google directory for a "Cell Tower Site Acquisition" company in your state or metropolitan area. These people know the Real Estate Managers at the carriers closest to where you live.
Or you can always submit your site information directly to the carriers on their websites.
