Das da ticket!300 viewsAT&T uses a distributed antenna system (DAS) to light this site on Valley Circle in the San Fernando Valley (Los Angeles County). The DAS node, manufactured by Andrew Corporation, is the small box affixed to the larger power meter pedestal cabinet. Notice that the node is not directly affixed, but is held via stand-offs.

Awful AT&T Antennas493 viewsThis rather awful antenna site, from AT&T wireless, is located at 10239 1/2 Vassar in Canoga Park, California. The dual band antennas use tower mounted amplifiers to enhance weak signal reception.

CellSign Updated333 viewsThis AT&T wireless site has been modified since the last time we photographed it. Search for "Pico" to find the original site configuration. Originally, this was a single band site; now this is a dual band site. The boxes adjacent to the amplifiers are called "tower mounted amplifiers" (TMAs).

Mounting collar: Radome above a light standard634 viewsHere's a close-up view of how a radome is attached to the top of a concrete light standard. This is a Sprint site in the Newbury Park portion of Thousand Oaks, California1 comments

Two Cacti Site - Eagle Mountain Golf Course and Inn650 viewsHere are two more cellular cacti, both manufactured by Larson-USA (utilitycamo.com). The landscaping at this site is nothing less than outstanding. It's very difficult to photograph either of the cacti in a full frame given the landscaping. If you didn't know it was there...you wouldn't know it was there! Way to go, Sprint!3 comments

Two Cacti Site - Eagle Mountain Golf Course and Inn398 viewsSprint's site, designed by Larson-USA, is an outstanding deployment.

Sprint's Eagle Mountain Inn Site Equipment Enclosure530 viewsNotice how Sprint has placed its equipment enclosure partially underground and colored it to match the surrounding area. Yet another reason why this is an outstanding site. (I do wish they had painted the GPS antenna, or placed it flush to the top of the roof fence.

Panoramic view of Sprint Mountaingate Monopole639 viewsThis panoramic photo show the street cuts from power (left), telephone (right), the power meter (far left), the BTS equipment vault and vents in the traffic median, the street cut from the median to the antenna pole (far side of median), and the base of the antenna pole (far right, behind tree). The pole in the middle of the traffic median is a two-arm street light. Too bad it (or a replacement) wasn't used to support the antenna. That would have eliminated the need for the standalone pole just to support the single panel antenna.
cell.omni.bekins.pico.PA170056.JPG
Building side mount omni site304 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).

Penthouse external mounted site307 viewsThis is a plain, externally mounted cell site on a commercial office building. Note the GPS (timing) antenna well above the roof line, which might have been mounted at the roof level to minimize its visibility from ground level without impairing its function.

Camo-ish on-building cell site893 viewsThis is an example of how surface mounted antennas can be detailed to blend, if not disappear, into the background of the structure.

Surface mounted antennas sometimes just require matching paint387 viewsThis surface mount wireless site is less visible due to the use of matching paint on the antenna radomes. Less visible, but not a true camouflage site.
