      That's a lot of microwaves.

      Do you know what carriers are on that tower, Jonathan?
    • Jonathan Kramer
      Andy: I was on the way to an appointment so I couldn't stop to read the signs. I'll plan to stop in on my next trip out to the desert to find out who's pumping RF.

      It's Nextel, Verizon and Cingular (formerly AT&T). T-Mobile (formerly Cingular) and Sprint have sites in a different location nearby.

      Thanks, Larry! I guess you saved Jonathan some time. ;)
      In CA, does every carrier that's on a tower have stickers/signs identifying that they're on it? The only carrier that does this in my area is t-mobile.

      Sprint and Nextel both place their identifying signs on every cell site here. Cingular does most of the time as well. Verizon and AT&T often did not which sometimes made it hard to tell.

      Wow, are there enough microwave dishes on that thing or what!
    • larry
      I just drove by this tower about 2 hours ago. lol As I said before the carriers are definetly Nextel, Verizon and Cingular (formerly AT&T).
    • Jonathan Kramer
      I bow to you, oh Master!

    • KiwiSurfer
      Are the onmi antennas right at the top cellular or not?

      Any idea who the MW dishes belong to?
    • Jonathan Kramer
      First, welcome Kiwi!

      Larry (whom you'll get to know as you read the forums) had a reply above in this thread that's very helpful. I presume that the omnis are for cellular/PCS, and that the microwave dishes below to the same carriers described in Larry's message. This site, while not remote, does appear to relay to sites that are in a mountain pass area to the east.

      Have you ever seen the big Sprint tower on Hwy 74 on the way to Idyllwild (East of Hemet as you go up the mountains)? It's the only tower I see on this stretch and is in a very remote area. Sprint had to apply for a microwave relay site a few miles away because I guess they couldn't run T1's at this location.
