This AT&T owned tower now holds probably every carrier in the area, including Clearwire WiMax and Verizon LTE.
Whats that thing down the RHS of the tower?
RHS? Care to dumb that down for me?
Right hand side? I think the object in question is a traffic light. BTW was this originally a BellSouth microwave tower? The ones I saw on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi we also dehorned but no one was colocated on them (at least the ones in Gulfport and Pascagoula).
Yes, as pbw explained, it stands for Right Hand Side. Also there is LHS which should be obvious now.
And yes it seems to be a US-style traffic light. We dont have that here in NZ so that stumped me. I half-thought it was part of the tower!
Yay! I got that one right. Yes, in the US they are generally suspended above ground. If it is sub-urban or rural the traffic lights are suspended via tense wire between two wooden poles.
Don't be too fooled. In a passing glance the traffic light looks like it might have been FM broadcast radio antenna side mounted to the structure which does happen office....
It looks kinda tall to be an old microwave relay station, but I may be biased. Here in Virginia they usually put the microwave towers on top of hills or mountains, so I guess if built at a high elevation a tall tower is not required.
I'm pretty sure what you are all seeing is the pole that hold up the street light, or the power lines running across the shot. As for the tower, cellreception.org lists it as bell south. I would assume this tower has been around for decades and has just been re-used as a cell site. South florida is littered with towers like this.
Just looked this up, this tower is owned by Cingular
