United States: Gregg Skall To Radio Guide: 2017 Will Be The “Year Of The Towers”
Last Updated: April 25 2017

In a new column in Radio Guide, Womble Carlyle Telecom attorney Gregg Skall writes that 2017 is shaping up to be an eventful year for the communications engineering and construction year. In fact, Skall said 2017 may be remembered as "The Year of the Towers."

In the article, Skall said a number of factors are driving this activity, including:

  • Many repack stations needing to modify their towers;
  • ATSC 3.0, which broadcasters are exploring to reach mobile device users;
  • FM translators, as the FCC is relaxing its rules for translator siting. Click here to read more about this particular development;
  • Wireless broadband will need additional tower space to support new technology.

Gregg Skall represents broadcasters and other parties in their regulatory dealings before the Federal Communications Commission and in their commercial business dealings. He serves as Washington Counsel to several state broadcaster associations. He also works with telecommunications companies and with radio device manufacturers to obtain FCC approvals.
