Structural Analysis Request

Although not usually required, submission of a structural analysis (if one has been completed) will help answer structural questions before they may become an issue. The exception to the above policy is in the case of construction of new structures. If a new tower is required because the carrier asserts that an existing facility is not structurally capable of supporting its antennas, then a structural analysis of the existing structure may be requested to support the application.
