So, it works in orange, too!406 viewsThis is a Clearwire site near the Portland, Oregon airport (PDX). Sites near airports are sometimes required to be painted with aviation orange and while to make them more visible to pilots. Clearly seen in this photo are Clearwire's on panel-per-sector deployment for serving the customers in the area, and two backhaul microwave antennas to link this site to other site, and on to the Clearwire POP ("point of presence") connecting to the Internet.

Side Saddle Microwave Dish Installation311 viewsAnother 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.1 comments

Cell site and Microwave Relay312 viewsThis site is not a mobile telephone switching office (MTSO). Rather, its an aggregation point for microwave backhaul from other wireless sites. Verizon and Nextel are co-located here.

Why red and white? This site is located adjacent to the Ontario, California airport.
