    Thanks, guys. It's been a long struggle, but well worth it. I don't have any immediate plans about what I'll do as a lawyer (when admitted), but clearly it'll be in the wired and wireless telecom area.

    Of course, I'll continue to be a tower hunter, especially in those areas where I know in advance where to look (my 100 cities and counties) :rolleyes:

    Shores, I promise to get 'noisy' again, but I needed some time for Bar study before the end of February, and I've been busy getting my own CableTV.com forum up and running with sage counsel from Joe.

    More photos shortly.

    Tony, thanks! You'll be amused to know that last week at one of my cities, a member of the public suggested that a site be denied because the carrier uses CDMA instead of the 'world standard' of GSM. Oy. j

    CONGRATULATIONS Jonathan and good luck for the future. I bet you are relieved now that is over you and you have passed. That is quite an achievement to be in the pass rate of 39%.

    Looking forward to lots more tower pictures now....:D

    Shores, in all honesty, plain old towers bore me from a hunting standpoint. I like the odd and unusual sites (as I suspect you've figured out from my picture posts so far).

    PS: I've just posted 9 photos. Hard to keep up with you! :wink: -j

    Thank you, Charlyee.

    Actually 39% is fairly typical of the California pass rate each February. The test is a horrible 18 hours over three days. Many call it a hazing :mad: (and I guess I can, too, now that I've survived it). :wink:

    I've posted a small handful today, with more to come very soon.

    Ah, I don't think so unless you're over 70 years young!

    Do you have anything to do with Kern County? There's a 102 Ft Sprint tower under construction in the town of Porterville (Kern County). It's behind the Clevenger Ford dealership. There's also supposed to be a new 100 Ft Verizon tower going up about a mile away. If I get a chance I'm going to drive up and check it out when I'm in that direction.

    Lol well, I'm not exactly the tower specialist but I'll search for some more unusual sites. They do exist here too but are much rarer.
