Remember this thread? http://electrical-contractor.net/ubb/Forum1/HTML/002348.html
Now they are making them into flag poles. http://www.zwire.com/site/news.cfm?newsid=10228190&BRD=1569&PAG=461&dept_id=180945&rfi=6
I hope that my cheapo digital camera can get a decent enough picture to share. Anyone seen these?

Yes! they erected a trio of those poles nearby. What a great use for them. They have a thin pole with a series of antennas mounted to them, then panels around the outside to cover them up. Ends up looking like a very thick flagpole and yes they do fly flags from them.

I will try to remember to take a few pics of them soon. I missed my chance a few weeks ago when they had them open to service them.

Have installed them on 3 different cell sites. The come in different diameters depending on the antennas used. Most of the time only coax cable is inside them. The rest of the equipment is placed in a cabinet or room out of site. It can be a real pita to get the condout and cables routed correctly.
Customers like them and property owners usually like the money they get for space rental.
