Park that signal...

...in downtown Denver, Colorado. Panels affixed to the outside of the buidling offer an interesting problem: How to keep little hands off of them (and thus comply with the FCC OET 65 RF safety rules).

      You're getting closer to my home state, Utah. ;)
    • Jonathan Kramer
      Andy, I do get around :)

      Actually, my next out of town trip will be to Colorado. I'll be very near the cellular Bison site, and I've had an offer from a local government to get me close access to the site for photo purposes. I hope the weather is good when I go.

      Wow, you are extremely lucky and I am jealous ;) I hope you make it around to Northern Utah sometime.
      The Cellular Bison site belongs to Verizon I think, so why do you need government access to access the site?? Sorry if that's a dumb question :)
    • Jonathan Kramer
      I was told it is on government property. It may not be true, but I like to be prepared. j
    • Andy
      Oh, well you know more than I do, lol, but you're right, better be prepared than sorry!

      Most likely Nextel. The antenna are made by Allgon which was bought by Powerwave. That configuration is very common and exclusive to Nextel sites here in the Norfolk market. It has been depreciated in favor of various flavors of Andrew Decibel antenna so the Allgon antenna are hard to find.
    • BillRadio
      I agree it is most likely Nextel. They are the only carrier in Denver that uses 800 MHz-only antennas. Cingular & Verizon have added PCS panels to all their sites. I expect Nextel to add PCS panels, eventually. I too wonder if the panels are too easily accessible, but we don't know how close you can get to the edge from the inside.

      Are you trying to copy the Buffalo antenna? It is only marine plywood with the panels screwed on to the sides.

      Bill:

      I presume you're addressing the query to me. No, I'm not trying to copy it, I just want to get some hi res photos of the site to add to the gallery. It's a unique site, and should be properly memorialized!

      BTW, there's a story floating around that a camo site existed inside a plastic cost atop a resturant/bar in Las Vegas. I'm trying to track down the source..."

      Moo! :browani:
