      Good thing this went up before the people started moving in to their new condos or there would have certainly been some protests! Look how close it is!

      Larry, I like these slim-line poles as compared with the poles with large radomes on top. Thanks for posting this. jlk

      Yeah much better than the larger ones. That one actually looks... like a flagpole. :D

      Those GSM carriers built a bunch of them that were big and ugly. :D Sprint has generally had better designs with their sites, especially the trees.

      That is really close. I'd love to stand by the window there and check my rx level on my phone. :)

      Yeah can you imagine? It must be nice to pull in a -40 dbs.
    • Andy
      I pulled in a -22 today taking a picture of a VZW cellsite out of my car. PCS never seems to go down that far though.

      There is a flagpole site down off of Imperial Hwy in La Mirada ( I want to say La Mirada Blvd, but I'm probably wrong) that the pole was just HUuuuugeeee like 3' in diameter. Looked rather scary.

      I think I remember getting a -38 one time. But usually nothing below -40.
    • JTVOIP
      Which site was it and what street were you on?
    • Andy
      Verizon's 3300 South St. Mark's Hospital site here in Salt Lake City. I was in the parking lot right in front of the site.

      Here's a more recent cam-phone pic of the Pomona flagpole. I'm surprised they didn't put a fence around it.
