This Is A Real Tower Site

AT&T and Sprint share the tower at the Tower Plaza in Temecula. The antennas are adjacent to the 'windows' in the tower, and the BTS cabinets are hidden on the roof of the main building.

      California always has the most interesting ones. Nice find.
      hmmm... still trying to figure this one out... im always for concealment but it looks ODD in a good way.

      On a side note: JK - Very very good picture that you took!

      First, welcome to WA!

      What looks odd about this to you? The "Tower" was a design element of the original project (this is called the "Tower Plaza". The carriers followed after the structure was built.

      I appreciate your compliment on the photo. As you'll learn through the threads, I am a wireless planner for governments, as well as an attorney. Over the years, I've taken thousands of very hi res photos of cell sites to use in my lectures for planners, and to populate my own cell site gallery at www.cellularpcs.com/gallery/

      What's fun about being a professional photographer of sites is that I am approached to provide photos for magazines and for advertising. About two years ago (September 2007) the National Geographic published ten of my photos in the NGM, and more photos for an online feature. I recently had a number of my photos published in a French art magazine. Hey, it's fun and the per-photo license fee doesn't hurt, either.

      Best regards,

      Sounds like a fun job to me Jonathan, ha ha. That probably includes a little bit of traveling here and there too?

      Back when I was going to law school, I was traveling 80K to 100K a year within the country. Now it's down to about 25K, mostly in the western states, and lots of day trips. Working primarily for governments, I've learned that city councils and city attorneys just won't come to you; you have to go to them.:browani:

      Yeah, I have fun!

      According to my records Sprint activated this location on 1-15-2001. Funny how I never made a visit to this site.

      Larry, once more you encyclopedic knowledge of SoCal sites amazes me! I stand (sit and type) humbled before you.

      You're slacking Larry! :browani::browani::browani:

      I'm pretty sure you've seen this before though, or surely drove right past it,
      it's right at the I-15 Exit 59 (Rancho California Rd). :D

      I have to say though it's a pretty cool site and a great picture,
      The only way I'd know it was a cell site was if I was doing field tests on my phone,
      watching the signal strength and PNs as I walked around the building.
