Now, this is a Cellular Array

Sorry for the blurry shot (Cellphone camera). Took this at the Costco in Lake Zurich, and thought of how appropriate to us a old Grain Bin for equipment, and same for the Old Equipment Tower.

Also to the right, is a U-Verse box on a Utility Pole, but could not get the shot.

I threw out the map a long time ago. Now I follow my own direction!

This looks like an early AT&T silo type tower, and a more modern AT&T type A tower. The silo tower was probably built in the 1949-1950 timeframe, as that type was only used on the very early microwave routers.

The 1st Utility pole on the right, is where the U-verse box was. At least it makes sense, due to first appearance looks like a old Grain Silo facility that was retro ed.

This is a photo of a Vodafone hub here in Adelaide. Also lots of dishes.

The photo above this one is an Optus hub in Adelaide.

Optus is Australias second largest telecommunications company. Most of the dishes in the first picture are Optus, the tower is owned by another party.

Talk about killing a thread.
