Cell Phones in Yellowstone
Laramie, Wy – Yellowstone National Park is drawing criticism from conservation groups regarding the height of cell phone towers there. Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility say a tower near Old Faithful is twice as high as originally planned.
Park spokesperson Cheryl Mathews says they are in the process of creating an antenna management plan; it will look at any existing or proposed cell phone towers.
Mathews says there are about five towers in the Park right now. All of them are in developed areas. She says the antenna management plan could mean they will change the height of those towers.
