The US has more satellites than the rest of the world combined. There's also a huge copper network and growing fibre optic network. The difference here is the much greater bandwidth these tower can broadcast compared to satellite or wired. Its the only place one can get full bandwidth broadcasts(satellite and wired are highly compressed). I get both cable and OTA HD at home, and the OTA blows away the best the cable can provide. Satellite comes in a distant third.

I guess I should also mention the mandated free bandwidth available for qualifying local affiliates of the major networks, as well as the need for more High-Definition bandwidth.

I saw a programme on the Discovery Channel about a mast they built in Texas i think it was and it was ******* huge. They completed the main body of the mast in a few weeks because they used a massive helicopter to air lift the peices into place. The view from the top look crazy. The guys that build these things must have no fear at all

That is a lot of tall structures remember. The same height of the planned Chicago Spire.
