    I want to see more equipment photos.

    Alot of folks dont get to see GSM, CDMA, Analog, iDEN equipment itself.

    I would like to see a Sprint synergy site with iDEN equipment with a CDMA BTS right next to it.

    Heres a pic of an old school CDMAone cabinet with Analog. Analog is on the left, digital CDMA is on the right. Amplifiers are on the bottom.

    Me, too. I think equipment is 10x more exciting than towers simply because we never do get to see it. I highly encourage this thread and have subscribed to it.
