      Judging from the PCS 1900 designation, I would surmise that this is a Sprint or a VZW site. Whose site is this?
    • Jonathan Kramer
      Shores, I'm not sure. Save for the two Nextel rocks, the others weren't identified.

      So one can just access those rocks whenever you want?
    • Jonathan Kramer
      Yup. There's a dirt path up from a street, past the power meters (I have a photo of them, too), up past the equipment shelters, and to the rocks and sign. I have a series of large photos of this amazing site at the other place.

      Yep I've been to this one as well. Sprint has a site there and I think every carrier does as well.
    • Andy
      That's amazing. So someone could just go there and do some damage to the panels if they really wanted to. I didn't think that it would be this freely accessible. Thanks, guys.
    • larry
      yes it would be an easy target if someone wanted to do something like that.
    • Andy
      Larry or Johnathan, have you guys put your phone right by one of those panels from Sprint(Larry) or Verizon(Jonathan) and thrown your phone into field test to see what kind of readings you'd get? That's something I'd do. :)

      LOL, I would be afraid that my hand would fall off, and my phone would explode!
    • Gamer03
      Yeah.

      I wonder if phones freak out when they are that close? :p

      There's another fake rock site in San Diego offf the 8 freeway near a casino. It looks pretty good. I've not tried to walk up to it.
    • Jonathan Kramer
      Andy, the level can actually be lower just next to the antenna as compared with just a few feet further away. This is because the RF field does not completely form just in front of the antenna (the "near field"). That's why the FCC's OET Bulletin 65 describes two general ways of computing exposure, one for the near field, and one for the (yes, you guessed it) far field.

      In any even, levels in the -30s can be seen close to antennas.
