      That's an unsual setup, I didn't know it was normal to expand the height of a cell site with such a structure. It just doesn't fit the profile of a rooftop site.
    • chuikov
      It's a unique situation. The township is very restrictive about allowing new structures, but permits rooftops with no additional height limit.

      There a couple of other 20' to 60' towers on rooftops in the municipality.

      This sort of setup is not uncommon with sites located on Telephone Exchanges in New Zealand especially in smaller cities. Also one Vodafone site I took a pix of last year was located on top of a car-parking building with a monopole and equipment shelter occupying about 2-3 carparking spaces!

      I shall post a few pixs of the above when I come back home from holiday. I'm currently posting over a fairly expensive GPRS connection! ;-)

      I'll look forward to it Kiwi.

      This is a very unusual setup, looking at the panels I would have guessed it to be T-Mobile, but not NEXTEL.
    • chuikov
      Me too.

      There are a bunch of T-Mobile sites around here with two 6' antennas per sector. Nextel usually has three or four 8' antennas per sector.

      This one has 4' antennas, why, I don't know. Especially since the pole can hold another carrier and large antennas are not prohibited by ordinance.
    There are no comments to display.
