A Shorty _Pole Site

Yet Another _ _ _ _ pole site. Missing it's little _ _ _ _. ATTWS built the site, so it's likely to be Cingular, now.

      That is very tiny. it's probably just there to relieve capacity from surrounding sites.
    • Jonathan Kramer
      Andy, this site is just east of I5 in San Diego. Yes, it's a capacity site most likely serving the Freeway.

      Cingular also has another one just like this one in Encinitas along Coast Hwy 101. But I think that one has a flag on it.

      Another naked flagpole. If they make these flagpole sites, why not keep flags on them? If it costs too much to keep presentable flags on them then they need to choose another design of tower. Am I wrong???

      You're right on.

      In Temecula, California, Cingular built a flagpole site at a local MickyD's. Now, you likely don't know it, but Temecula is known for its rather gusty winds. Here's what happened when Cingular didn't keep an eye on Ol' Glory at the site: Click Here. :confused:

      Here's a VZW site in Hesperia, California with a similar level of 'maintenance': Click Here and look at the hoist rope. Do you see what I'm talking about??? :eek:

      There are federal (and in most cases state) flag display requirements such as lighting (if the flag flys after dusk), and respectful disposal and replacement when necessary.

      I write those rules into recommended conditions of permit approvals for my governments.


      PS: For other examples, do a keyword search on "FLAG" at my place and you'll find other interesting examples of flagpole sites. jlk

      Have you see the Cingular flagpole in Mission Viejo near the I-5 and Oso Parkway? For a while it looked like they had completely let it go with no maintenance. Even the paint was all flaking off. But it looks like they took the flag off and repainted it now.

      Thanks, if they don't intend to keep up with keeping presentable flags they should abandon the flagpole idea.

      PS - I love the new avatar!
