FAA Tower Lighting Revision ("Bird study")

Post by Deep Thought » Fri Jun 08, 2012 11:56 am

This is not technically an FCC rule or regulation issue but it will directly affect the antenna structure registration process very soon. Attached is the FAA's Technical Note DOT/FAA/TC-TN12/9 "Evaluation of New Obstruction Lighting Techniques to Reduce Avian Fatalities". If you have lit towers it may be time to get familiar with this if you have not already.

The study is also available directly from the FAA at http://www.airporttech.tc.faa.gov/safet ... TN12-9.pdf.
