An article in the Asheville Citizen-Times this morning (Jun 3, '04) reports that the phone company is withdrawing its proposal to build three cell phone towers in the Smokies, and is looking instead at the feasibility of mounting antennas on existing utilities poles.

That is good news !!!! Hope the existing utilities poles work. Sure don't need those darn towers everywhere! :)

If they have to have them, why not make them like this:

Great! Hopefully someday the phones will all run by way of satellite.

NAH Rain Man, I'm sure you were very polite and respectful. My letter however, ummm,, (cough, cough) prolly got their attention.....

Anybody else have your voice heard by letter or email?

I emailed the govenor, the congressmen, the park, the parks administration (can't remember exactly who) and also emailed some other national park organization, NPF or NPA or NP-something. I should have written to Cingular too, but I had that thought too late.
