Outstanding T-Mobile Church Site830 viewsThis is a photograph of T-Mobile's outstanding installation in the exiting bell tower of the Piedmont Community Church in Piedmont, California. The antennas are hidden behind the faux vents. T-Mobile originally proposed a faux stained-glass design, but the City's planners wisely opted for the vent design far more in keeping with the normal look of a bell tower.00000

Yet another ____ Pole1035 viewsOnce again we have a flag pole antenna site missing an important element: The Flag! This is a Cricket site in Spring Valley, California. Notice that the GPS antenna is visible above the CMU wall enclosing the BTS cabinets; it's a bad design, and unnecessary.22222

What is, But What Could Be...821 viewsThis is a special photo of a semi-camo site in Santa Fe, New Mexico. If you click to enlarge it, you'll see a before photo (showing the visible panel antenna in the opening) and after photo simulation of how this site might have been better designed by the carrier. Sometimes it the little things that separate a ho-hum project from a wow project.00000

Sickly Monopine1085 viewsOff of the Old Las Vegas Highway outside of Santa Fe, this poorly designed monopine stands out like the sore thumb it is. The branch coverage, branch count, and panel antenna socks are inferior. A properly designed and executed monopine would not all the antenna stand-off arms to be seen, much less be painted a highly visible green.

By the way, in this case, Las Vegas refers to Las Vegas, New Mexico, rather than to Lost Wages, Nevada.

Now you see it; now you shouldn't.1256 viewsAs an example of how to ALMOST construct a camouflaged site, look at this photograph. Nextel's camo box fails to extend the flashing around the top of its enclosure. As a result, from ground level you can see the coaxial cables running over the top parapet to the camo box. I've created a photo simulation to illustrate how little it would have taken to complete the camouflage for this site, and the benefits of that little effort. Planners, think about these things...they will make a great difference in the result of your work.55555
