AM cellular tower detuning system

As the most experienced firm offering AM detuning services, LBA gets some complicated requests. LBA’s professionals are mostly unsung when they accomplish these missions.

Kathryn Tesh and the LBA team recently set straight a cellular tower detuning project in the Pacific Northwest, saving the cellular customer considerable money in the process. So it was a bit of a Holiday gift to receive kudos from both the station consulting engineer and the wireless carrier project manager. Here’s what they said (slightly edited for privacy):

From the consulting engineer:

“The ownership of K*** has asked me to respond to the engineering study performed to determine re-radiation potential.

I see no problems and I appreciate this careful work.  We have a history of concern expressed by the (on channel) station in Seattle and consequently have been careful to maintain our night-time directional.

LBA has done excellent, careful engineering.  Please proceed.”

From the client carrier manager:

Thanks I have the reports and believe this closes out the projects.  I hope you have already invoiced for everything and I have approved what has come my way.

I agree with the K*** engineer.  These projects were somewhat complicated with the three sites and our early construction of one of the towers.  I am very pleased with how LBA handled the whole thing. My compliments to yourself, Mike and the LBA team.”


And, as we write this, here’s a thank you just in on another project!

A carrier construction contractor needed really fast response involving the dispatch of an LBA engineer to a remote California location over Christmas week. Unfortunately, an LBA competitor had walked away from the project, leaving the contractor stranded with a deadline. The LBA report was on the client’s desk this morning!

Here’s what the Program Director said to Kathryn:

“Excellent work.

I have reviewed the report and I appreciate the completed analysis.

I may have questions later today but for now this report as delivered is much appreciated.”


We very much appreciate the customer feedback. LBA has been performing consulting services since 1963, always with customer satisfaction as the #1 priority. Please contact Mike Britner to enjoy LBA superior professional services in AM and EME wireless compliance services.
