Re: Rogers uses Fed Regulations to Screw People

Getting under IC's radar isn't the only reason they build 15m towers these days.

Since cell towers are much smaller than before, they no longer need to be anywhere near as high as they used to back in the days where cells were often more than 10km across. Shorter towers are also cheaper, lighter, quicker, safer to build, sturdier, easier and cheaper to maintain, etc. There are tons of advantages to sticking to the lowest practical height.
