Leasing of the land and tower properties to unrelated third parties were rental activities as defined in Sec. 469. 

Passive income is most commonly reflected on Schedule E as a net rental income. 

Examples:  fields leased to a farmer, mobile home parks, land leased for billboards, lots leased to sell Christmas tree, land leased for cell towers and campgrounds.
