This is an example of a CA celltree. I thought it was the best looking palm on the block, 'til I saw the cable tray at the base and realized that it's a cell tower (note the vertical bars) We've got 'em inside church steeples too. Are they doing this in other parts of the country? ie, VT Cellmaple, CO Cellaspen??

That's a great idea!

We gotta add celloak and cellpine for around here. Maybe cellphones could work in the more affluent areas.

Is that a common thing elsewhere that the more exclusive areas don't allow cell towers?

On a different note, but just as wierd and innovative, I read that they're running fiber optics lines through the sewers of Albequrque(sp?) NM so they don't have to tear up the streets for installation. What would you call the poor guy that has to later service that, besides "Stinky"?

Yeah,
I've seen cell towers that look like Huge Cactii, on a website I was at recently.
Very life-like too!. [Linked Image]

Around here, (NJ) there are a few very, very tall pine trees that are really plastic/fiberglass cell towers.

A friend of mine owns a radio tower construction/maintenance business. He doesn't build these but has done some repairs on them and has brought back broken off plastic "branches" to show me. Looks like a huge artificial Christmas tree.

There's quite a movement against cell-towers among some people in Britain at the moment. They don't want the "death ray" towers anywhere near them, or so they would have us believe.

Strange then, that many of the protesters spend a considerable number of hours every day with a cell-phone clamped firmly to their ear, the antenna only an inch or so away from them.

That's all right of course, because they've never heard of the inverse-square law! [Linked Image]

And these people also own Microwave Ovens and TV-sets,which are always good for a wee bit of radiation.

There's a big problem with the word radiation. Too many people don't really understand its true meaning and automatically assume that radiation = dangerous.
