Looks like the broadcast rag RadioWorld finally addressed the issue of the
tower regulation act.  At least, once alerted, they didn't bury their heads
in sand the way many hams have recently done, to say it's nothing to worry
about because it would affect such a small percentage of antennas or towers.
That's the same argument used by Johnny Johnston's Private Radio Bureau at
the FCC, and other AM-haters, when Docket 20777 came out proposing to
eliminate AM and later, the AM power issue, citing the small percentage of
licensees who actively operated AM.

One comment to the RW site that caught my attention was a concern that the
FAA (or FCC) might require registration of all towers, accompanied by a big
filing fee.
