    I just looked them up and it looks like they specialize in high-band equipment like 2.5Ghz, CBRS, and LTE-U level spectrum.

    Why do some VZW installations have 3 or 4 antennas per sector seemingly of the same model vs 2 per sector? I'm guessing the 4-per-sector installations are 6 sector cell sites?

    They're either old legacy antennas or placeholders for future bands. The typical installations from a few years ago would have one B13 antenna, one B4 antenna, one PCS antenna, and one 850 antenna per sector. They've only been consolidating lately because the 6 and 8 port antennas allow them to deploy 3-4 LTE bands across only two antennas which is better on tower/antenna mount loading. 6 sector sites are very rare and I've only seen Verizon deploy something like that maybe once. MetroPCS was the only one who used to run 6 sector sites.

    When a tower base gets poured with concrete how long does it need to dry before they would even consider placing the tower on it.

    Depends on the mix but usually about a week to be safe. There's a certain minimum compressive strength the concrete needs to meet which gets monitored and tested almost every day after the pour. Once that passes, the contractor gets the go ahead to drop the pole if the pole is ready to get set. Most of the time it's a tight window because cranes are expensive and it costs money to have a pole just sitting around.

    Finally got up close enough to this site to get a half decent view of it. It went live around the beginning of this year. It is very low but definitely a macro and I can pick it up a couple miles away:

    Concrete was poured 5 weeks ago on the tower I have been posting about.

    May be issues with ordering the tower then.

    Here are some better pics using bing maps. Verizon I believe is on here as they get really get service around here . On Antenna search , it says the first ones on here were clearwire but sprint service sucks. Yesterday I noticed that there was a crane and a contractor Up there adding antennas which looks like another carrier. (I'll try to get a pic latter today) I was thinking it was AT&T but the antennas are fat and almost squared shaped similar to ones in this thread. Does Att use those fat short square looking ones as well? Like I said I think Verizon is already on this tower so I was not sure. also who's antennas are mounted on the roof of it if u could tell?

    Don't have a updated picture's yet but there are at least two more larger box type thing's on the tower that I have posted about. They appear to have cooling fin's on them. Will try to get pic's asap.

    This is not a very good picture but there appears to be 5 new boxes/something on this tower 1 in between each sector panels and two others pointing in random directions. http://imgur.com/E7R74JQ
