Huntley Community Radio will soon be adding its own antenna to an existing cell tower in Huntley, Illinois. As it is an internet-only radio station, it requires an antenna to transmit FM airwaves. It recently received Village Board approval for antenna placement on the existing cell tower. According to The Courier-News, “The board agreed to allow the non-profit group to operate on the tower rent free for three years. After that, the board reserves the right to review the rent-free clause in the contract.”
Typically, any modification to a cell tower should result in fair compensation to the landlord. However, in this case, the landlord has allowed the non-profit group to utilize space rent-free initially. If a telecom or tower company adds more equipment or co-locators to your site during the term of your lease, you should be receiving additional rent.
