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 [Linked Image]

A lot better looking than the fake "pine tree" cell towers here in the northeast! [Linked Image]

With that side branch, would make a good J-pole antenna, I'll bet! [Linked Image]

Thats for sure, I was up in the White Mountains of NH and had a great veiw of some very unreal pines.
They seemed to fool the wife, she doubted they were fakes.

Still better then plain cell tower.

Somebody on Cape Cod was going to put up a cell tower that looked like a lighthouse, I think the town said no.

Great, we have trashed (and littered) the landscape long enough. I bet somebody will steal it though.

I think it's great.
The reg towers are usually an eyesore.
Maybe it'll make it harder for the terrorist's to jack up our communications in the future.

I agree with txsparky a waste of money. Plus these are harder to service when service is needed. Any one who wants to damage a cell antenna will not be fooled by it

Let's disguise those ugly traffic signals too.

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! [Linked Image]

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?
