Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
".a valuable addition to your broadcast management bookshelf, dense with useful information and supporting materials...If you are active in tower projects, and particularly if you are new to zoning, this is well worth the investment. The book and CD-ROM represent hundreds of hours' worth of legal and tower expertise that you're getting for maybe the cost of 30 minutes of a lawyer's or consultant's time." — Paul J. McClane, Editor, Radio World
