      A very busy looking tower, and nice view of the power lines too! ;-)

      Yeah, nice power lines. The locals will look right past that mangled power pole carrying god-knows how much power, and focus on the wireless stuff:loony: .

      I saw the other photos in the Fairlawn, NJ thread about the water tank up the road. I'm still confused as to why the folks are so worried about the tank. It's plenty tall enough that they should have little exposure from an installation.

      Any idea what that microwave on this pole is pointing up at? It looks like it is at a pronounced upward angle.

      It is not a microwave antenna. The "bent toadstool" type of antenna is a satelittle "dish" reciever for an XM Radio terrestrail repeater. The XM broadcast antenna can be seen between the middle (second from top) and bottom cellular antenna.

      They are made by til-tek and look like panelized cellular antenna.

      So T-Mobile's antennas are on the bottom row, bobolito?
    • KiwiSurfer
      What sort of service does XM provide? Is it just a standard FM station or some thing more specialised?

      Good to know...is there a way to tell the difference between XM and Sirius repeaters?
    • chuikov
      Thanks for explaining that antenna pbw.
    • pbw
      Dunno. If I ever find a Sirius repeater I'll let you know. Supposedly XM has far more repeater deployed than Sirius. Now the Montgomery Co says there is one on a water tank but I have yet to check that place out. I guess I should.
    • pbw
      Not a problem. For those with mild curiosity about these, I have more information and slightly better example pictures on my website, in the Wireless->Notes section.

      I was not aware that the satellite radio systems utilized repeaters. Thanks for sharing!

      In places like NYC, without repeaters the service would not work at all. You need a very good sight of the sky for those things to work well.
