Telcos will be reluctant to share sites for mobile phone base 
stations. I proposed this be regulated in a submission from the ACS 
to the National Capital Planning Authority in 1992 
<http://www.tomw.net.au/twnpln2.html>. But the federal 
Telecommunications laws override the state and local planning rules, 
making it hard to force coordination.
