Yet another ____ Pole865 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.

Church bell tower - GPS antenna726 viewsThis is what first caught my eye: The poorly placed GPS antenna. A better design--one not visible to ground level viewers--would have been to place it at the top of the bell tower out of sight, or on the 'back side' where it would not been seen by church goers.

GPS and LMU antennas1015 viewsThe GPS antenna (the pointed white dome) is used to receive satellite-delivered timing signals used to sync a large-area wireless network.

The LMU (Location Measuring Unit) antenna, which in this photograph is mounted on a bracket to the left of the GPS antenna) is used to help a wireless carrier locate its users as required by the FCC for wireless E-911.

Building side mount omni site293 viewsNotice that the omnidirectional antennas are mounted on the side of the building near the corner. Even more interesting is that the GPS antenna (used for network timing) is mounted in such a way as to be shielded from about 120 degrees of sky (this site faces northwest).
