Strand Mounted Antennas

The wireless industry thinks they have a great new way to sneak antennas into our communities. Many local codes are silent on strand-mounted antennas, and some explicitly exempt them! 

According to a manufacturer, “This new device would have the benefit of concealing new equipment in an enclosure that the public is already familiar with and improve the timeline for the local jurisdiction’s approval.”

A small cell antenna emits RF radiation all day long, whether it’s attached to a pole or mounted on a strand. Make sure your local code specifically covers strand mount antennas as well as those attached to poles and buildings. See our revised Code Checklist for other code recommendations.
