Telecom Apps

Telecommunication Tower Survey App

Document the telecom tower height, structure, location, broadcast service availability, and more using the Telecommunication Tower Survey App to effectively manage your organization’s tower assets. Determine what maintenance is needed and repair any observed damages. Implement the survey at various stages of a project - from the construction of a new cellular tower to the installation of new parts onto an existing structure. Customize this survey to accommodate any unique survey guidelines. The survey app will work in both on and offline environments.

Inspector Name



A topographic map with the location of the TOWER clearly marked.

The geographic coordinates given including a statement how they were determined

The datum for the coordinates. Normally it will be NAD 83 but can be NAD 27 especially when FCC data is used for the submittal.

The street address of the site.

A property survey



The overall height above ground level (AGL) including lighting and lightning rods

The height of tower structure

Location and description of any residential accessory structures

Sketch of Structure

The applicant's location on the tower

Plan and elevation views, location of hardware such as antennas, feedlines, combiners and amplifiers

Sketches that are either to scale or labeled

The orientation to the North marked

Plans sealed by registered engineer

Type of Structure


Guyed lattice

Self-supporting lattice

Water tank


Alternative tower structure

Design Plans

A complete set of drawings including calculations, names and versions of the engineering software used and a statement of all assumptions and methods used to drive the proposed design.

Technical System Design Parameters

Microwave Links

The link budget for each path, power inventory, fade margin and path analysis.

The proposed heights of dishes or horns, operating band and modulation type.

The path analysis for elevations ten, twenty, and forty percent below proposed height.

The assumed Fresnal clearance.

The alternative pathways analyzed depicted on a 7.5" USGS Quad.

The maps showing path analysis for the proposed and alternate sites.

Broadcast Service

An area-to-locate map showing the proposed site.

The latest engineering filing (application) with the FCC

The latest authorization issued by the FCC.

The environmental Impact Statement required by the FCC.

RF Radiation

The orientation, ERP and beam width of antenna(s).

A statement of when and by which method the applicant predicted the amount of non-ionizing radiation. If the method was by actual measurement provide details concerning coordination to insure that all transmitters were operating at the same time. Provide make, model and serial number of equipment used. Describe method calibration and obtaining data. If the method was by calculation, give the relevant equations and their source(s)

The percentage that the maximum radiation for the site is at the closest public access point to the maximum allowable limit set forth in OET Bulletin 65 August of 1997 or latest revision for the general population
