Sprint Adding Cdma To An Iden Site With A Cow Being Deployed

Not sure if this COW is related to the Nextel & Sprint sites which are located on the utility tower and have a separate equipment shed. There are three pictures of this from different views.

      That steal on the ground there looks like parts of a monopole. Did T-Mobile recently take town a pole, or are they putting one up? Either one would explain the COW, if it is infact T-Mobile.

      Come to think of it this it the first time I have been to this site ever. It's possible T-Mobile could have had another site here before and for some reason took it down. Maybe they had a monopole in place and decided not to renew their lease or decided to move it to the Utility tower where Nextel and Sprint are. This COW did not appear to be funcational. I didn't hear any noise coming from it and the panels are not raised up in the air like you would expect from a live site. Why even use a monopole when they can easily co-locate on the Edison tower?

      I've seen a few times where to get extra height or support, the carrier actually puts a small monopole up the middle of the structure that comes up the top, where the panels are then attached. I'll see if I can find this here somewhere.

      Notice how the power structure on the left (cricket) has a small monopole going up the middle and out the top. Also leaves the rest of the structure open for another carrier.

      Here in Southern, CA they don't allow any panels mounted above 65 feet on Edison Utility towers and nothing is allowed over the top like that. So no chance of something like that happening here.

      Hmm. Well, keep an eye on that site and see what happens there.
    There are no comments to display.
