I'm planning a base station for a local medium power WLAN and low power FM station (both licensed) and I need a recommendation of a pre-fab equipment building to put at the base of the tower. It only needs to be about 10'x10' with a cooling fan (A/C not required). I have 120/220 VAC, 150 A and phone service at the site. :smt102

There are plenty of options online but I'd prefer to go with one someone has had a good experience with.

Thanks guys.

I've used Crest Precast for a couple of these 8x16' concrete shelters. They're not cheap, but they'll withstand any kind of environment you can throw at them. Mine are installed in Iowa tornado country. It'll still be there when the tower is gone! ... er8-16.pdf
