On AntennaSearch.com, type the necessary information in Street Address, City and State fields, and click Go. The search process shows results within a 3-mile radius of the selected location. Click on the suggested location if you provided partial information, and wait until the website processes the results, which typically takes longer the more densely the selected location is populated. Click on the View Tower Results button, and select the desired tower by clicking on it on the map or clicking on the appropriate link in the list below. AntennaSearch.com normally provides information regarding ownership, structure type, date of construction and ground elevation.

To find the necessary information on CellReception.com, type a ZIP code or the name of the city in the two fields on the home page, select a state from the drop-down menu, and click Go. CellReception.com uses the Google Maps service to display the towers. Use the mouse scroll wheel to zoom in on the map, click on a red pin indicating a cellphone tower, and then click on the link above the address to access further information.
