      Seems like a pretty tall site. Is this in an urban area?

      EDIT: I guess I answered my own question: Seems like a more suburb like area, correct?
    • Jay2TheRescue
      Sterling is a suburb of Washington DC. This area in particular is an industrial area. Along this street are construction companies, auto repair shops, trucking companies, and self storage units. The area is somewhat hilly so a tall site is required for it to have any real range.

      Site is tall because of the variation in terrain. Really, it is not as tall as some sites are. It just looks that way because it is on high ground. Monopole on Jeese Court is also tall. It is relative.

      This situe is next to but not behind the self storage place. Head south on Cascades Parkway and you'll see the entrance to the site. Two weeks ago there was some kind of mobile satelitte trailing on the entrance area. It is very over grown and not easily found. This site is an example of the new style of Cingular/CellularONE antenna that has been poping up lately.

      Approx. how tall would you say the site is, Jay?
    • Jay2TheRescue
      I would guess as tall as a 4 or 5 story building. I'm somewhat nearsighted so I really can't trust my eyes on stuff like that.

      40-50 feet sheesh that is tall
    • Jay2TheRescue
      I guess its the area I live in and the areas I frequent this appears to be tall to me, but not excessively tall. Then again like said in another post this area is hilly, and other areas I frequent are quite rural so tall towers are the norm there too.

      Thanks for the estimate, Jay.
