Cell Tower – Balloon Visibility Test November 13th
SBA Tower is interested in installing a cell tower on Swarthmore College property in Nether Providence Township, off of Avondale Road near the I-476 overpass. A balloon test was performed on November 13th from 8 AM to 10 AM where a balloon, similar to a weather balloon, was raised to the peak of the proposed tower. Township representatives took photos from various points surrounding the tower to determine from where the tower will be visible. The photos can be seen here: SBA Cell Tower – Balloon Test Pictures. Please note, the locations where the balloon was seen are NOT the only locations from which the tower may be visible.
Plans for the cell tower can be found here: Cell Tower Plans
