Outside of Shaw AFB

Cool sites like this make tower hunting so rewarding. Site was originally omnidirectional. Note Nortel cabinet, BellSouth Mobility DCS NC engineers influence on site design.

      Ha, that is one nice setup there, which I haven't seen too much here in the States. Great picture, Thanks for that!

      Well, where your from in the states =] The telephone pole is very common in Virginia in rural areas where zoning is an incredibly sensative issue (such as in Albermarle County) or in areas of limited siting space (such as Georgetown Pike in Fairfax County for the BAM repeaters, on of which is in the gallery). I have pictures of a few others. I posted that one because it was odd. In SC there did not seem to be a problem in building full blown cell site structures (self supported towers were very common). So it was wierd to see BellSouth build such a lowend repeater style macro cell. Well, maybe I found that interesting =]

      Nice. They seem simalar to the type becoming common in NZ. Instead of having a full tower with 2-3 panels per sector, these days they generally just do one panel for each sector and cluster them at the very top of the pole like they did in this photo. Looks much better in my opinion!
