Lots Of Signal

Mesa, Arizona. Both the water tank and the lattice tower form this joint site. City of Mesa has multiple antennas on the tank in addition to the various carriers on the tank and the lattice tower.

      Unless I'm missing something, I can only count 4 possible spots where the carrier's antennas are. There are two sets on the lattice and at least maybe 4 sets of panels on the water tower??

      Hi Der:

      The tank and tower are collocated. The two camo covers below the tank hide antennas. Also, the City of Mesa has antennas on top of the tank. The collocated lattice tower has lots of antennas on it, too.

      Don't forget that the collar mounts on the tank can support antennas every few feet, so that various carriers can 'aim' as needed. Also, don't forget that because the covers are up you might see more than one carrier aiming along the same azimuth by using offset brackets to extend and turn the panels.

      While I didn't have time to inventory these towers on this trip (I will, next time), here are a few facts:

      The FCC ASR Number for the tower is 1011592. That reports back that Verizon is the owner of the lattice tower; that it is about 36 meters tall (about 117 feet); and was constructed in 1992. American Tower now manages the site: See, http://www.americantower.com/OASISP...SiteBrochure.asp?lngSiteID=5105&lngTowerid=-1 for more.

      The City of Mesa has VHF and UHF radio antennas on top of the water tank.

      The City of Mesa's East Mesa Conduit (Fiber) Loop drops at this site (no surprise there).

      The water tank is about 151 feet tall. Its name is the "Falcon Water Tank."

      Steven: First, welcome to WA, and the THG! Just keep your eyes open where you live and you'll find many interesting sites. What part of the world are you in, anyway?
