VOSI ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARD
PROPERTY OWNER NOTIFICATION OF CELL TOWER RF ANTENNA TOWER
1.1 To create a
notification zone by which NOT ONLY property owners within a
200 ft area of the perimeter of the block and lot number of
the party requesting a Cell Tower antenna variance, but
additional property owners within a minimum 500 -ft radius
from the center of the antenna tower, must also be notified.

2.1 VOSI RR12-V60.2,
" Research Report for Property Owner Notification of Cell
Tower RF Antenna Tower Variance"
Communication System (PCS) - a system of communications
operating in the 1850-1900 MHz range.
Communications System (CCS) - a system of communications
operating in the 800-900 MHz range.
3.3 Cell Site - Typical heights of a "cell site" are
50-200 ft, usually a monopole, consisting of a collection of
1x4 panels, arranged in 3 groups of 3, resulting in a overall
36 sq. ft panel, with several 10 to 15 ft "omni
directional" antennas that look like whips hanging from
each panel. (Ref 2.1)
3.4 Radiation Zone -
Milliwatts per sq/cm of body area up to 500 ft radius from the
antenna tower center.
4. SIGNIFICANCE &
4.1 The residents living
within a 500-ft radius of a cell-site, have the same
"Right-to-know" of cell tower radiation as residents within the present
200-ft. notification zone.
4.2 Lawsuits have
established a precedent for rejecting cellular towers based on
Communication System (PCS), Cellular Communications System
(CCS), "Right-to-know", Radiation Zone
