Wayne Tree Tower

A much needed tower just went up about 2 weeks ago. Located right at the bottom of the Nelly Dr. hill near Valley Rd. in Wayne. I think all carriers will jump on it. Hopefully, this will put an end to the dropped calls on Preakness Ave for ALL carriers, though Cingular currently seems to be the only carrier that doesn't drop calls in that road right now because of their site at Wayne St. Joseph's Hospital. It is hard to tell how many carriers this new tower has because of the camouflage, but it appears to have four.

      By the way, the tower is still not active and I see some work being done on it almost every day when I pass by it. In that picture, it looks like the panels aren't even installed yet.

      At least they did a better job of camouflaging the panels. You have to look twice before noticing that it's an artificial structure.

      I would think these monopines would look better if there was a taper to the length of the branches. They seem to stick out when they resemble big green pipe cleaners.

      The stem looks kind of fake...Bobolito, do you think this is good camouflaged setup?
    • bobolito
      Seems like any other camouflaged pine tree tower in this area. I can spot them and tell it is a cell tower without even looking at them. ;)

      It's pretty easy to tell by looking at the tree stem as well as the tree bark. Artificial just has its own signature :D.

      The limbs look good, and the panel antennas being painted brown work well too. There is a rough, bark-looking coating that could help with the trunk, but this installation goes beyond the call of duty.

      3transformer utility pole in the forground is a little uglier.

      Tower is active. I don't believe Cingular is in that tower, but I am positive Sprint and T-Mobile are on it.
    • bobolito
      On second thought, Cingular just added panels to this tower. Confirmed today as I get much improved RF while passing by it. I wonder what took so long to add Cingular to this tower. T-Mobile has been on it since it was erected.
