    It can take a fairly long time depending on town laws and zoning, etc. Heres one thread that has been going for a lil while.

    Not counting the pad for the equipment. Most around here are going up in a matter of days, literally. Quite a few simply appeared one day, with panels and inclosure's in place and the next day they are online. Cell towers are popping up faster than dandelions in the spring around here.

    Actual construction should take about 4-6 weeks give or take for new tower. most of it is the driveway, utilities and foundations etc. It only takes a few days to stack the tower and do the antenna work.

    RF planning, site acquisition, engineering and zoning takes 5-10 months on up to a couple/few years.

    well the guys here have been working since jan 13 and the tower is up, and from what i can tell 2day their putting up some antennas. b4 the site was a big open field, but now it looks like a construction site. there are a few 18 wheelers and dump trucks. there they've actually made a new driveway out of crush-n-run dirt. all of this has been done already. i thought about taking some photos and posting them onsite. maybe i'll do that 2mrrow
