In the past, camouflaged towers might have called up thoughts of forlorn fake evergreens sticking out of the surrounding scenery like a sore thumb, but concealment is becoming more popular, more artistic and more necessary to infiltrate populated areas that may need a boost to coverage. As tower concealment's popularity continues to increase, the folks who build the disguises are looking for the best ways to modernize. In many cases, that means keeping up with the latest in radio equipment-- but as concealed towers become commonplace and more corporations try to get their hands in the game, the industry may need to take a look at who is responsible for regulating these innovative disguises.
