Monorock, Interrupted856 viewsSprint has demonstrated that it can build very nice monorock sites. This isn't one of those good sites. Too many square edges, and not continued around the back enough to hide the edges from passersby. For an example of how Sprint does this type of design correctly search this site for "Now You Don't See It, and Now you Don't!"

God Bless This Cell Site238 viewsLocated east of I-17 in Black Rock City, Arizona, this multicarrier site has an odd shaped antenna mounted directly to the tower. A message, perhaps?

The AT&T Wireless and Cingular antennas are behind the faux rock detail at the top of the chimney.

Panoramic view of the Rocky Peak Wireless Rocks and Wireless Sign1267 viewsHere are 5 of the 6 cell rocks at Rocky Peak. The cell sign is hidden behind the cell rock in the foreground. Note that cell rocks are on concrete pads.

The equipment building with the small microwave antenna belongs to Nextel. The hidden building with the larger microwave antenna belongs to AT&T Wireless. Other carriers are in fenced cages below AT&T and Nextel.

This site houses Cingular, Sprint, Verizon, AT&T Wireless, and Nextel, and serves the Ronald Regan Freeway (SR118) at the east end of the Santa Susana Pass between Simi Valley and the San Fernando Valley.

Save for one of the Nextel rocks (shown in this gallery), there are no RF warning signs to alert the public to (suspected) high level RF fields around this easy-to-access site.
