Cell phone towers is where the money is at least that is how it looks here in the deal between Sprint and Global Signal. Where the heck are they putting all these towers? Do you know the effects they are having on you and your family? The next two articles that are posted will go directly into those effects. Stay tuned!

A proposal by Telstra to build a mobile phone tower on the western side of Lake Macquarie has been rejected by council, after residents revealed its visual impact had been significantly under-estimated. Councillors last night rejected the 30 metre high tower at Teralba after a long campaign by residents, who conducted their own experiments to determine its impact on local homes. Lake Macquarie Mayor Greg Piper says council surveyors have confirmed that Telstra’s original application to council had misrepresented the impact of the tower by about a third. “It’s certainly a significant departure and I don’t believe it’s reasonable for a company the size of Telstra to be so far from the mark in representing visual impact,” he said. “That worked greatly against them and the issue of visual amenity is not to be put lightly aside.”
