I’m glad you’ve stopped by to take a look.
I’m Jonathan Kramer, Esq., your host and resident pundit/critic here at celltowersites.com.
I’m a contract wireless planner who has advised hundreds of local governments around the country (and some outside of the U.S.) .
By training and experience, I’ve been involved with RF engineering and technology for over 35 years. For over 17 of those years, I’ve advised my government and private clients regarding wireless tower siting issues; construction matters related to cell sites; RF safety considerations; and project aesthetics. I’ve also dealt with broadcast and amateur radio communications, as well.
As if that weren’t enough, I’m also an Attorney at Law admitted to practice in California. Not surprisingly, I focus on telecommunications law issues through my law firm, the Kramer Telecom Law Firm, P.C. (There’s an expanded bio of me at that site.)
I’m currently (2010-2012) an LL.M (Information Technology and Telecommunications Law) candidate studying through the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland.
Through my consulting practice, Kramer.Firm, Inc., as well as wireless planning, I also serve as an expert witness in wireless tower siting cases.
So, why did I create celltowersites.com?
Over a decade ago, I set up celltowersites.com because I knew that government and private wireless planners are very visual people. What better way to show the planners what can be done…and what should be avoided…by taking and posting high-resolution photographs of what I like to call “The Good; The Bad; and The Silly”.
Over these past 10 years I’ve posted nearly 1,000 of my favorites in the Gallery section of the site. Click here to visit the gallery. I have many, many more photos that haven’t appeared on the site. Heck, ten of my photos appeared in the September 2007 issue of the National Geographic Magazine illustrating an article on camouflaged cell sites (the NGS website has an online feature about camo sites that use many more of my photos).
As for this blog, it serves as an important communications vehicle to share what’s happening in and with the wireless planning community, as well as the wireless industry and their attorneys (who also like to keep tabs on what I find interesting).
I hope you’ll enjoy your stay here, and come back regularly. To entice you to do just that, ever so often I’ll offer a gift to frequent visitors/reply-posters.
Finally, if you thing you know a bit or two about wireless tower siting matters or the law of wireless tower siting and would like to be a writer here, please contact me and let’s talk about it!
