This paper aims at studying the location of an FM Radio Antenna outside Jebel, Timiş County, Romania. At present, the land is considered ARABLE according to an excerpt from the Real Estate Office no. 403328, issued by the O.C.P.I. Timiş. It concerns the location of a metal pole 51 m high with bars to support radio equipment and it was designed to enlarge the coverage area. The tower was designed to resist strong pressure from wind. The pillar is a metal structure made up of 17 pole segments 3 m each. The segments are triangular and made up of three round pipes installed at 1200. The pipes are stiffened with counter-winds. Once installed and positioned, the pillar will be anchored on the six foundations F2 with steel cables 8 mm diameter, according to the elevation plan. The pillar has as a foundation a bushing of armed steel measuring 1x1x0.9 m in height; it is supported by a concrete block measuring 1.4x1.4x0.7 m. the anchoring of the pillar will be done with six anchoring cables on the six F2 foundations according to the plan. Anchoring cables are of steel Ø8; they will be mounted together with the pillar. The cables will be tensioned at 1 KN. The entire metal collection will be galvanised in the workshop. The first and last three segments of the pillar will be red and the other ones will be white and red alternatively. The site will not produce smoke or artificial fog as described in the Building regime. Works will be done in three steps: Step 1 – ensuring the precinct; Step 2 – infrastructure (de-covering, digging and foundations); Step 3 – supra-structure (mounting the metal pillar). Land survey was done in the field with GPS equipment from Leica, series 1200; the apparatus was downloaded with a Geo Office Combined Leica Programme; the coordinates WGS 1984 were turned into Stereographic 1970 coordinates with the programme TransDatRo; and data were processed with the programmes TopoLT and AutoCAD 2014.
