    On 11/1/05 I presented a tower siting lecture to the California Chapter of the American Planning Association. My co-presenter was Robert Smith from Crown Castle. We called our presentation, "Wireless Siting 2005: A Sea Change."

    I recorded the lecture and have converted it to streaming audio. I've also converted the two sets of lecture slides to PDF format. Both are now linked through my main website, www.KramerFirm.com. The lecture runs about 1.25 hours.

    I hope you find the industry v. government views to be interesting. I certainly did! :)

    Best,

    Jonathan

    PS: I'd appreciate your comments on the lectures posted here, both positive :cool: and <gasp> otherwise :eek: to help me do an even better job in the future. jlk

    Thanks, Yankee! I really enjoy giving the lectures, and this is the third one I've done with an industry rep on the same panel. I've alway thought that one point of view is one point of view too few. :wink:

    Best,

    Jonathan

    The only problem (just for us forum people) is that it was sometimes a little bit difficult to keep up with the slides and figure out which slide be currently being discused, but i got over it, lol.

    I also wanted to bring up that picture of the GIANT transmission line. What is that thing...half a mile wide?!?

    It's hard to get a handle on just how big :eek:
    that thing is until you look at the cars below it, eh?

    That moster tower is in Federal Way, Washington, as is the slide that follows it (the two towers side-by-side). Maybe I'll post the monster to the Washington gallery.

    Yeah, i'm sure everyone here will get a kick out of that thing. And i thought New Jersey had some old school large transmission lines, that thing makes them look like your everyday neighborhood utility pole!

    Okay! I've put 3 photos online in the Washington section. One of the Monster, and two of the BTS cabs at the base.

    Best,

    I also took a look around your page of the pictures of cable lines. I have to say, that picture of the heavy duty chain holding on to the cable was pretty funny. I have never seen that before!

    Charlyee:

    Please try again...but be prepared to wait. The PDF is better part of 70 MB (the original PowerPointLess was about 125 MB) due to the photographs.

    I noticed that my server was attacked this morning by an out-of-country site. I put the IP range into my firewall to kill it.

    Best,

    Jonathan

    I've received a lot of nice comments on/off the board about the lecture. I'm glad that people are enjoying it, even if the PDF is a monster download.

    -Best-
