Cellular Bison

First captured at WA by RadioBill, here is a photo taken this afternoon (3/23/06) with an 8Mpix camera. According to RadioBill, this is a VZW site. It's about 1 mile south of the Wy border on I25. I'll have more photos posted at my site tomorrow. Photo by my employee, Steve Allen.

      What a neat camouflaged site :D....welcome to the Wild West :D
    • JFB
      That is a very unique cell site.
      How long do you think it is -- head to tail?
    • Jonathan Kramer
      Joe, that was my question, too. That's why I had my employee take the long shot (looking to the south from near the Wyoming border) at the top of the hill. Steve estimates that the bison is 8 to 12 feet tall. That would be about right given the apparent height of the panel antennas.

      Time to take a tape measure along next time :D

      I pass this site all the time on my way to my hometown in SD (I now live in Loveland). Didn't know it was a cell site until I came on here. Now if you drive by it, you can just barely make out the panels as you wiz by. Easier to see, the less attention you pay to the road ;)
    • Andy
      So is there only one set of panels or is there another set of panels on the other side facing along the highway towards the other side of the bison?
    • Jonathan Kramer
      Both sides, Andy.

      Question for you: Have you visited/photographed/know of the cell site in Utah that was a route stop on last season's (family) Amazing Race? It looked like a bunch of balls (radomes) atop a couple of monopoles.

      I have not heard of it, nor seen it, nor watched it. ;)
      If you can point me to where the site is or give me more info on it, I may be able to check it out sometime.
    • Jonathan Kramer
      Oops, no need. I was able to find an Amazing Race site that had the reference to the stop name, "The Tree of Utah" (which is NOT a cell site). Here's what it looks like:
