Monoblah (Oops...Monopalm)1407 viewsThe design of this monopalm site leave much to be desired, including the use of real bark cladding in lieu of the bark tape applied to the pole. Also, the antennas lack the camouflage of overhanging palms, and also lack covers. This is a run-of-the-mill design, at best. Montebello, California
