Usually the most remote and beautiful parts of our great country have poor reception and few towers. It sounds like a good excuse to move to the country. Of course you may want to do away with all the other EMF and electrical devices too.

Your best bet is to work with a Realtor who knows the area you want to move to. Be specific with the agent that this important to you.

I've tried to find cell tower locations from the cell service providers without result. A general rule is they try to place them as high as they can with an eye towards keeping them near main roads and highways.

Good luck!

Use Google maps to scope out the area first, but the only way to be sure is to drive by the property.  You can also contact your local cell phone service provider for a list of towers in your area.

Most buyers love looking at homes online because most everything they want to know about a home is on many websites. The real fun begins when they start driving through the area they find suitable. Your best bet could be to simply drive out to the homes that meet your needs to see just how that neighborhood is laid out and learn if you really do like what you see. That is the best way to find out if there are any cell phone towers or power line towers near the homes you like. Many great homes and deals are closer to these structures. I have found many clients that are not concerned with them in the neighborhood . I have also had many clients not get out of the car once they spotted a tower near the home they wanted to go see. Drive out to the home and see for yourself. You may be surprised to find out some other great things about the neighborhood while you are there.

NTETS' link is very good.  

The best way is to find an area with no cell phone reception, and no plans to install towers.

That may be a tough find.  When searching for homes with your Real Estate Professional just let the person know what your wants and needs are.  Once you find a home that meets your needs and wants I have heard of a site that you can use  http://www.antennasearch.com/ to search the address and see if towers are in the area.  Good luck.

first, i don't care what you have read. there is no evidence anywhere that shows that EM radiation(the kind given off by cell towers) is harmful in any way. if you want to worry about something, worry about high fructose corn syrup. furthermore, no matter where you are, you can't escape EM radiation, even if you want to.

That said, clearwire has a handy tool on their website that gives you an idea of where cell towers are located. Its useful because they have a good swath of the country and deals with other providers to use their towers. also, though not all networks are the same, if anyone has coverage in an area, usually the others do to a limited degree. other cell companies have similar tools.

the easiest way to do it though is to buy out in the boonies, cell companies dont make billions because they have spotty coverage.

you could also just look around the neighborhood, afterall, the towers arent easy to hide.
