I thought this one was interesting just due to the sheer number of antennas and dishes.

      Nice! The mountain top pictures are some of the coolest ones we have.

      What a hodge podge of antennas. They don't look like normal cell antennas.
    • Andy
      Wow, this looks very unique. Do we know what carriers are on this?
    • larry
      I'm not able to ID any of them for sure but I think some of them are radio and TV transmissions.

      From what I see here most of the it is for two way radio, the vertical antennas at least. I know the county and city have numerous two way radio systems running up there. There is also a STL link for Channel 51 (Channel 9 on most of the cable systems down there). I believe almost all of the microwave tubs up there are government related, the county, state, SGDGE, water district, etc all use Cowle's as a microwave hub.

      And I'll even venture to say that those cellular looking antennas aren't for a cellular carrier but are being used by the San Diego County (Or city) trunked radio system.

      I guess I'm getting pretty good because I didn't think any of them looked like normal cell antennas. :D

      The tower on the right has a ton of Bogners which ive only seen used by 850 cell companys. The tower on the left has panels and the one in the middle has what we call a DB 812 omni stick.

      I bet my RAD meter would go nuts up there.

      Yes, I was definitely using the inverse square law and staying a distance from the fence.
    • TelcomJunkie
      Also used by the San Diego county Smartzone system :wink:
    • TelcomJunkie
      Naw, not too bad. Not like it would on Mt. Wilson.


      My Nardalert would register 50% while on the approach road a few years back :D
