    408 feet tall? Wow the tallest we ever get here in So. Cal is 150 feet and even those are rare.

    We are in a rural and have several tall towers, There is another Alltel tower, used to be WW, on US71 highway about 6 miles from me that is about the same height.

    Seems like they make them taller and space them further apart around here.

    I went back to my first post and the edit is gone. Is there any to add more pictures to that post without starting a new one?

    The example of a lesser capacity on the network, hence the coverage is less 'localized' and dense. Not to mention the topology has a great affect. At the end of the day, the HAAT (height above average terrain) isn't a whole lot different.

    Larry, as I say in my teaching lectures, cell systems grow downwards. Four hundred eight feet screams coverage; rooftop screams capacity.

    Exactly, you look at the systems designed here in the Los Angeles area and they've been specifically designed for shorter ranger than they're capable of. I've got a picture somewhere of a double Nextel site that's next to a gov't site. One tower, 6 sectors on it and two sets of base station equipment in the shelter. Obviously they needed some extra capacity :D :D :D

    I know of one Cingualr rooftop site that's only 25 feet high max.

    Here in the LA MTA you'll find a lot of those. Rooftop sites on two or three story buildings versus the 60ft tall tower.

    Thinking about it, a perfect example would be the sites on Sepulveda north of Sunset on west site of the street. Almost every carrier is up on that rooftop and it's only 20ft high.

    Puerto Rico and much of the Carribean is that way with a plethora of sites that fall into one of two categories....short rooftop stub towers on short buildings and large microwave towers with sectorized cell sites on mountaintops.
