      Wow that is an strange tower. Nice find. Was this used for some microwave system mack in the day?

      Thanks! I see this tower all the time. Its kind of plain looking for a cell tower though, ha ha.

      (Microwave??) I'm not sure, but its possible that's what it was used for in the earlier days. There is actually a small dish on the other side of the tower, further down not visible in the pic, but I'm not sure what its used for.

      I just took some more pics today and here is another tower with pretty much the same design. Its on the left... :p

      The dish or drum on the tower is probably a Microwave backhaul.

      In the US there was an old Microwave network that would bounce long distance telephone calls and television broadcasts across the country. If I understand it right, a signal would go from tower to tower across the country until it was near its destination and then it would go into a hardline. This has been replaced by fiber and other methods now.

      Oh ok, thats what those are. I was thinking they were some sort of old Microwave tower. I've seen quite a few of those in the USA, as well as the pics on here, and the American Tower website. You guys have tons of them. I have yet to see one of that design here in Canada.

      (my picture)
      Yeah, the tower is a different design, the only ones I've seen are this one and the one in the link I put up that are actual cell towers. I've seen two shorter ones that have the big dishes on them, but no cellular activity I don't think. Maybe when I get around to it I'll go visit them and take a few pics for ya.
