The Federal Aviation Administration issued a notice asking for public comment on a proposed KRSN radio antenna on North Mesa, north of the Middle School.
According to an e-mail sent out to local pilots by Los Alamos Airport Manager David Ploeger, KRSN has filed a request with the FAA for a second study to see if a tower would cause any interference with the airport or air traffic.
“The FAA put out a public notice about it,” Ploeger said this morning. “They encourage airport managers to post it for the public to read. If they want to make a comment they can.”
The reason for the notice is that the proposed structure would exceed obstruction standards and has triggered an aeronautical study to determine the effect on airport space and flight functions.
The posted notice answers at least a few of the implied questions, noting that a preliminary study did not identify any effect the structure would have on either instrument flight rule factors or visual flight rule operations or procedures.
An earlier proposal was for a tower 190 feet tall.
Ploeger’s note said the FAA made a determination that the previous antenna proposal was presumed to be a hazard to air navigation at that height.
