How to find tower rental tenants?

Post by Fran3 » Thu Jun 29, 2017 8:39 am

We have an unused 198 foot tower and are wondering how to advertise it and find tenants.

Somebody said the tower rental business was all over but others say not. What is your opinion?

Also, what are typical rental rates... per foot and for equipment space? (or however they do it) and is electric included or each installation metered and billed separately?

We are in a market of about 600k in east central FL.

Thanks for any help.

Is the tower registered on the ASR? One of my clients has a number of inquiries from their ASR. Too bad that their tower is too small to support a cell sector.

There are brokers that do that as well but I have zero experience with them.

Regards,

If it isn't in the FCC ASRN database, register it even if it doesn't appear to need registration. That's where most of the tower databases draw from.

Rates and "extras" like floor space and electric service can be negotiated. It'll depend on what the tower can support as well. A Rohn 45 isn't going to get much action while a 36" PiRod might draw some tenants.
