>>Several weeks ago, someone mentioned on the reflector that 20,000 or more of
>>these towers are going up.  

AT&T is putting up 160 new PCS sites in NE Ohio alone.  They are supposed to be active Q4 1997.

>>Any opinions or observations how this will affect our hobby?

It's great for our hobby (locally -  that is).  AT&T has given us permission to put an antenna for a local repeater on the candelabra.  They even provided the consulting for the frequency co-location.
