I've been looking for permits for Dish and have found there seem to be more of them in outlying areas than I can find in areas around major cities.  For example, I've found none in Fairfax County VA, and fewer than a dozen in Montgomery County MD, but more than a dozen in Washington County MD (near Hagerstown) and others in places like Chesterfield County VA (near Richmond) but not in Hagerstown or Richmond.

Yeah, I saw that.  Doesn't really explain why they don't have permits for the poles in Fairfax County, for example.

At least in the Washington/Idaho/Montana/Alaska market, Dish is not using any power lines or utility poles. They’re exclusively going with rooftops and existing tower structures. 

Just heard back - this is a rule of thumb nationwide. Not sure how strictly other markets are following it but the team here is pretty adamant about it.

That's a great idea.  I hope they're able to stick to it and get some towers built in places where only power line towers exist today.

While that would be nice, it’s slowed down deployment in certain residential areas around Seattle where wooden utility poles are the only/best option today. In some cases, they’ve gone with lower masts on small grocery stores which really aren’t ideal (due to much higher clutter loss).
