Omnidirectional to Sectorized232 viewsThese poles formerly supported omnidirectional cell antennas. The carrier increased capacity by replacing the omni antennas with sectorized panel antennas.
Co-location cell site - sectorized and omnidirectional283 viewsA single monopole tower can support one or more sectorized carriers. The lower carrier does not use diversity reception (two receive antennas spaced so as to better receive lower power mobile handsets). The upper carrier does use diversity. Usually, in diversity configurations, the two receive antennas are on the outsides of the sector, and the transmit antenna is located inside, adjacent to one of the receive antennas.
