      I am surprised that is not a palm tree
    • charlyee
      Ryan those are all palm trees. They are typical date palms that grow in abundance in the middleeast and from which dates are supplied to almost the entire world.

      No I meant the tower i am surprised they didnt design it to look like one.
    • charlyee
      Oh I see what you mean. You know something Ryan, I didn't see any towers disguised to look like something else in Egypt or Brazil. I wonder why.

      Also there are very few camouflaged towers in WI, maybe it is only done in the metro areas of this country.

      Maybe in these other countries, since it's more of a Govt. controlled thing, they don't have the NIMBY'ers to say anything like here in the US or in parts of Europe. As for just in the metro area's, that may be because the area's are so built up already & people have nothing better to do then complain about the scenery & how the city look is closing in on the suburbs, where as other parts of the country are still rural enough and enough open space, that a tower isn't an issue for most people.
      I think it's neat what these companies can come up with for design's though, in my opinion the Flagpole and rock are the 2 coolest designs so far.

      So is this tower in Egypt? There are only 2 GSM (Vodafone and MobilNil) providers in Egypt so surely they share some tower sites along the Nile.
    • charlyee
      The tower is in Egypt and it's true ShoresGuy that do share some of the same towers. I probably didn't mark them properly with the right no. of carriers.

      What's intetresting is that even though Vodafone and MobilNil share some of the towers, MobilNil must be a stronger signal since my phone always chose it. Couple times I manually chose Vodafone but it would go back to MobilNil as soon as I turned it back to Auto.

      I guess the site had to be tall to get the coverage, so disgusing it would make it look more stupid.
