      That one looks like it has both a strobe light and a red L-864 beacon light. Never seen both on the same tower before.

      Sure is, I had some close up pictures of the panels at the top and confirmed it. That is kinda strange. On our towers the night beacon and day strobe are stacked. Do you work with tower lights?

      Oh no, I don't even work in the wireless business, ha ha. I just pay very close attention to detail on everything I see on a tower. Most towers here in Ontario either have a white strobe for daytime and then a red linking stobe light at night ......or........ they have a red flickering beacon light (L-864 beacon light I believe they're called). But I've never seen a strobe light and a red flicker light on the same tower.

      Got it. I work in the two way radio field, not cellular but see alot of cell towers in my travels. Was out flying over the weekend with a friend and got some good pictures of some radio sites from the air. Fun stuff!

      That kind of tower light setup is pretty common where I am at.

      Two towers (one ATC/FDOT tower and one Crown Castle tower near it) has that setup for lights.

      Another tower (one owned by Seminole County for it's trunked radio system has both a red beacon and strobe light at the top, both run continously at the same time, been that way since 1992 when the strobe light was placed atop the tower). Right now the ATC/FDOT tower light controller or photocell is messed up and both types of lights are running similar to the Seminole County tower.
