Get Odd Company Tower ID
Tower to owner map app
Use your device's built-in location services (GPS or cell-tower/Wi-Fi location) to retrieve antenna site registration information centered on your location from the FCC's Antenna Site Registration (ASR) database of registered wireless communications antenna sites. The data can be shown as textual data, with clickable links to a particular sites registration details, or on a Google Map in concert with the other towers in the local area. Both the standard (street map style) or hybrid (street map information overlaid atop satellite imagery) can be viewed. Tapping on a particular tower (indicated by a violet pin) will call up the FCC ASR details page where you can gather further information on those responsible for the site (often including contact information). Tower ID requires the use of location services on your device running IOS 5.0 or newer.
