      I knew right away which one this one was when I saw the pic. I pass by every time I drive to Santa Clarita on the 405. I'm surprised Metro or someone hasn't co-located on it yet because it's a in a prime location.

      It's also one of the more rare 4 panel per sector Sprint sites. They don't do them like that anymore. I'm guessing this one was put up around the year 2000. I know it wasn't in the original build because those monopoles had a very distinctive look.
    • TelcomJunkie
      Only two out of each four are active.

      That's what I thought. So what's the purpose of putting up the 4 panels? Just for looks?

      Who's brewery is it?
    • TelcomJunkie
      The older technology that Sprint used typically had two physical base station cabinets holding all the equipment. Two cabinets required two sets of antennas.
    • TelcomJunkie
      Anheuser Busch.

      I think this pole now has Metro PCS on it.
    • TelcomJunkie
      You would be correct in thinking that.
