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.

Any port in a storm589 viewsThis is a cable port near the base of the monopalm. It is used to provide an entrance/exit for the coax cables in the trunk of the tree. The 'ladder' below the port is actually a cable support. The coax cables are lashed to the ladder to provide physical support as the cables transit through the cable port.

A faux 'faux chimney'579 viewsCingular's faux chimney on the front of a real estate office is lacking the adequate coverage required to truly consider this to be a camouflaged site. Notice the interesting (read: "ugly") cable entry box, and the fact that the panel antenna protrudes above the level of the faux chimney. Not a good design.

Faux 'faux chimney' - A Different Angle362 viewsFrom this angle, Cingular's faux chimney on the front of a real estate office is a good design, but things aren't as they seem. See the view of this faux chimney from the other side to see why its inferior.

Faux 'faux chimney'384 viewsCingular's faux chimney on the rear of a real estate office is a better design than the front faux chimney, yet this chimney suffers from one of the same faults as the front: the panel antenna protrudes above the level of the faux chimney.

Cell site and Microwave Relay313 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.

Flush Mount Cell Site on PG&E Transmission Pole - San Jose, CA Airport2144 viewsThe interesting point about the cell antennas mounted to PG&E's transmission pole (seen in the right side of the photo) is that the antennas are not out on arms. Usually power companies require carriers to mount antennas on arms to insure adequate climbing space under NESC/CPUC GO95.
