We are a 6 story building that's been approached by DISH Wireless to install 6 antennas on our roof, in addition to needing 100 sg ft for equipment. Does anyone have experience with DISH and/or these towers and know the answers to the following questions that can affect shareholders (s/h)?
Did you notify all s/h prior to the lease and/or take a survey to see if the s/h wanted it, or did you just leave it to the Board?
Are they noisy (humming noise perhaps) and possibly bother the people on the top floor? Any noise complaints from s/h?
Does their weight adversely affect the roof, possibly making it easier for the roof to leak?
Must the roof be checked out beforehand by a engineer to make sure it's sturdy enough to bear the extra weight?
Do they have any negative effect on parking lot remotes?
Have shareholders complained of feeling sick/nauseous, especially those people on the top floor?
If you do have the towers, have you had an overall good experience and do you feel its been worthwhile?
We want to make an informed decision, so any information/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for any help.
