No provider supplied on the building permit. So who knows who this belongs to.
Building permit? Thats for wusses, get a netmon phone and do some researching! ;-)
I would, but it's not in my budget right now. Besides I can find out more from the permits, like what year the site was constructed, ect. Plus, for camo sites that's often the only way you would even know there was a site on the building.
Yep true. Here in NZ i generally get information from the Radio Spectrum dvision of the Ministry of Economic Development. They have a database of all the radio sites in NZ (cellular, TV, paging, private radio links, etc) with information on each radio license. For example I can find the frequency band, establishment date, map grid reference, and a few other information. The map reference can then be matched up to a map.
The council has resource consent (NZ version of building permits) information, but I don't think it's avaliable online. Usually the only RC's I see are for "notified" sites (i.e. when the council asks neighbours to give permission for a site to be installed nearby) where the coucil might put in a notice in the newspaper and put some information on their website. Not the most reliable way to find information as most sites built in the last decade or so are "non-notified" so the information is filed away and not easily avaliable.
I tend to use a mixture of the radio license information as well as keeping a lookout for new sites. Sometimes they get the license first then build the site, or somethimes the other way around. Woosh Wireless, for some reason, has bought about 400 licenses even though are are only planning to build, say, 50 sites each year for the next few years. Vodafone tends to build the site *then* get the license before it goes live.
