    Have you seen this cell tower near you?

    Well, I spotted another tower in a TV show. This time, it was tonight's episode of House on FOX. Sorry for the low quality pics, I will try to update them after the show posts online. First to ID the site gets a cookie!

    I'll give some of the other tower hunts a chance... but I'm almost certain I found it. I'll share the cookie if someone else gets it!

    Let's see if someone ELSE can get it. Here are some better shots from Google.

    It isn't a challenge for you if I post high-res google street view pics. You needed a challange, and you nailed it. Think anyone else is up for it here?

    Good old American Tower. So I don't know if I deserve too much credit...ha ha.

    The design of the tower is quite similar to a lot of the other Verizon towers I've noticed in California, and you mentioned it was on House. So I kind of thought, hmm......maybe L.A? So I did a bit of searching around (nothing else to do at 1am here..ha ha). I passed by it a couple of times thinking it looked like it. But I wasn't certain until I compared it to the google street view.

    This was fun. Before I was even able to grab a downloaded copy of the show, we were able to find it and grab it on google street view.

    I will be looking out for another site!

    Now find the Nextel site and the Sprint site, both are within a half mile!

    If only I could remember the episode of CSI Miami, I remember seeing a monopole somewhere on there. I'll have to figure it out some how.

    Well I confirmed it with Telcom last night through PM after I was able to locate the two sites.

    I will say, one is a little harder to see then the other one.

    Yeah, the Sprint one is a little tougher to find. It's not as easy to see on street view.

    The Sprint site is at 2662 Lacy Street, Los Angeles, CA. I've passed by it before a few years back. I believe it is a monopole.

    Yep, it is a monopole. Its further back in from the road and looks like it's in a small yard of a business.
