Side Saddle Microwave Dish Installation

Another view of this cell site which uses a microwave dish antenna system to provide backhaul to the MTSO. The interesting note for this site is the side saddle (offset) installation of the dish antenna. In most metro installations, a microwave antenna saves the carrier the cost of leasing a telco dataline, but at the expense of adding visual loading to the project.

T-Mobile's (formerly Cingular) towers that were built in the 1995-2000 era are so easy to ID. They all look exactly the same.
