      This is at the top of the hill on Central Ave. just before it turns into Hamburg Turnpike.

      Wow, that's 1 busy tower, does Cingular have 1 close by or is the 1 by the Hess station on Rt 23 close to this site?
    • bobolito
      Nop...The Hess station tower on Rt 23 is not even active yet! That's a few miles away.

      The closest Cingular site is the Wayne Hospital site. About 1/2 mile. This one is right by William Paterson University.

      Check out this map:
      - The black star is the Cingular site in the small clinic building.
      - The blue star is the site at the Hospital.
      - The green star is the American Tower by William Paterson University.
      - The green circle is a water tank next to that tower. No panels there.
      - The red markings is where Cingular drops calls despite the new panels at the hospital.

      thats a lot of stuff, on 1 tower.

      What makes this an "old" tower?`
    • pbw
      Because before it was a microwave relay for AT&T Long Lines. The tower is easily 40-50+ years old at this point. I am surprised the horns are still on. American Tower likes to just tear down those distinctive antenna, it seems on a whim.
    • bobolito
      Those horns are still all over NJ. We have lots of those towers.
    • Balistix
      I hate those stupid horn things. What exactly were they used for?
    • Yankees368
      Those pre-date fiber optic connections, and were used for long distance calling. Each pair needed line of sight to the next one, and was pretty much the back haul of the US telecom network until fiber.
    There are no comments to display.
