    I've got a guy bugging the hell out of me to put up a tower for a radio station. I assume it will require guys as he is wanting a full acre.

    Anyone familiar with rates in the Southeast, and common practice for reserving some tower space for my personal/future use or lease to other entities?

    Nope. But I think this is a serious contract and you may want to consult an attorney.

    Seems like $500/month and a percentage of anything else he hangs off of it is the going rate now.

    I may do it, may not. He seems like a nice, hard-working guy, but I keep thinking of my G-G-G Grandfather, and what he would say if he walked out of the house he bought in 1870 and saw a 200ft radio tower?

    We'll see.

    cell sites are valued as a function of how much traffic they handle and how much area they can cover. there's a restaurant on staten island that makes about $25K from cells. a church in my town makes about $6K. if you're out in a rural area, you'd probably get $500-1000/carrier. ball park

    i guess if you don't mind living with the electromagnetic fields and radiation, it can be good money.
