What a waste of money.The phoneco.ought to pass that cost straight to the people that complain about the conventional antennas,not the ones like me who realize they are needed if we want that cell phone. A friend of mine has a tower on his property and he figures he makes a nickel everytime the lights flash on it.Calls it his money tree.Wish they needed one on my property
I would guess that those disguised antennae are probably more protected from the elements since it's a weather-proof "dome" that's placed over the metal components.
However...does beauty come at the expense of efficiency?
I like towers....but then again...I'm biased, cuz I'm a radio geek!
Can't understand these fools who yell about CONCEALED towers inside church steeples and then turn around and bitch about their non-working cell phones when they want to order a pizza or their piss-poor TV reception when they want to watch a football game. Hell-ooo!!
How would you know there's an antenna hiding in a church belfry unless you go poking around up there anyway?
