Spectrasite Co-Lo Multisector at Different Levels489 viewsSpectrasite tower supports a three sector wireless system, with one of the sectors lower than the other two (to help shape coverage). Also, this site supports an omnidirection carrier (the vertical antennas on top of the tower). 2 comments02/01/06 at 12:56Kramer: No. This is off of the 60 east of downtown LA.

Another Sad Little Cell Pine941 viewsThis cell pine, owned by American Tower, is a fairly poor design as far as camo goes. Like other poor designs for cell pines, this design contains too few branches, and the 'crown' of vertical branches is a dead-giveaway.5 comments12/29/05 at 09:41Kramer: Well put, Jon. Thanks! -Jonathan

Monopalm with Hidden Antennas1252 viewsSprint's monopalm at St. Margaret's Episcopal Church in Palm Desert, California uses a design by Chameleon Engineering. The antennas are mounted inside the 'growth pod' below the palms. This view looks upwards to see how the grown pod radone is set out from the trunk of the palm.3 comments12/28/05 at 17:35Kramer: Yeah, cool!

Close-up of a cellular/PCS flagpole without the covers4557 viewsThis is a close-up shot of how antennas are stacked in a faux flagpole. All three flagpoles in this photo are really cell towers. The center flagpole is an AT&T Wireless (now Cingular) site in Los Angeles, California. Verizon shares this site with Verizon and Nextel. The flagpole is 85' tall and 25" in diameter. It's manufactured by Chameleon Engineering.2 comments10/27/05 at 07:40Kramer: Thanks, Rancid! I always enjoy capturing sites wi...

Panoramic view of the Rocky Peak Wireless Rocks and Wireless Sign1539 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.

Sprint microcell - Two Sectors702 viewsPole mounted Sprint microcell in Brentwood, California (Parkyns St.). The panel antennas should have been painted brown or green to afford some measure of camouflage. This site is near OJ's former home on Rockingham in Brentwood, California. It's a much nicer area than were he now lives in Nevada.2 comments07/25/05 at 12:03Kramer: This is a block away from OJ's old Brentwood estat...
