    Hi All,

    Going to be doing some hunting in Colorado (Fort Collins/Loveland area).

    Just uploaded a few. Any tips or suggestions would be helpful. I'm not all that knowledgable about antennas/type/Carrier identification.

    But I can point a camera at a Cell site!

    Cheers,
    Stu

    It's kind of fun. Just don't tell my wife. She'd say I was just wasting my time ;)

    That's the great thing about living in Germany, there are so many cell sites here in Cologne that you can't even begin to count them. At least some people have already meticulously compiled location lists stating which site at what address belongs to which provider. That way, I know whose setup is located where. Going out and taking one's own pics is the real fun though.

    I've spent way too much time putting up my ant system, so I haven't been able to 'hunt' persay, but I am in DESPERATE need of locations for any Verizon cell towers in the vicinity of Lookout Mountain, Nederland, Rocky Flats, & Arvada(north.)

    OR, if anyone knows of a program that will plug into Google Earth, and list all known cell towers via said program, I'd love to hear about it. OR, if anyone knows of a program that my comp can use to help locate cell tower signals via my Yagi ant system, I'll take those thoughts, too! THANKS!!!

    Stu, Chuikov: You DON'T want to know what my wife says about Tower Hunting in general (even if it is my business), although on the plus side, she says it keeps me out of her hair. :wink:

    Stu, welcome to WA!
