FCC looking at antenna structure regulations

The FCC on Monday released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) asking for comment on rules governing construction, marking and lighting of antenna structures. The FCC hopes the revisions will improve compliance and allow the agency to better enforce the regs. The proposed rules would also remove outdated and complicated requirements without compromising the FCC's responsibility to prevent antenna structures from being hazards to air navigation. A petition filed by the PCIA -- The Wireless Infrastructure Association back on Sept. 12, 2006, led to the proposal; it's being eyed now as part of an FCC biennial review of rules.
