The antennas are located adjacent to the 'windows', and the equipment cabinets are hidden by the roof parapets. The name of the center is, oddly, the Tower Plaza! A very good design, indeed.

Sending out the word...to Los Angeles International Airport281 viewsThis is an AT&T Wireless site just north of LAX. It's a rather poor design Notice (1) the panels just above the roof line; the microwave panel antenna offset from the bell tower; and the cable runs down to the equipment building. A good design element (perhaps the only one) is the use of the brick face on AT&T's pre-fab building.

Cell Site Generator Plug and Breaker/Switch-over Panel335 viewsMany cell sites must operate 24/7, even in the event of a commercial power failure. Most carriers have standby power generators that can be driven to cell sites and plugged in to a generator plug such as the one shown to the right of the breaker/switch-over panel. This facility is owned by AT&T Wireless. It's in the western part of Los Angeles.

Omni-directional Microcell on Sign383 viewsThis AT&T Wireless site, at Fairfax and Pico in Los Angeles, is an example of placing a microcell site atop an existing, small sign.

If you enlarge the photo, don't miss checking out the lid of the vault in front of the pole. The lid is a piece of plywood, apparently to replace the original concrete!

Nope, I don't want to drive my car over that lid, either!
