    I've been looking for panel ID pictures to help with this as well. The easiest way is probably to go near it and see how strong the signals are, presuming you have a TMo phone. Nice site, but it's like the camo ones around here that are next to something else that's "ugly." (what's the point?)

    What are the coordinates of this site?

    I like the camo towers wished they would have painted the panel brown like other towers around. The tower is not live yet as it is brand new. They just finished the wiring about 1 week ago.

    They probably will paint 'afterwards'. I'm not sure why, but carriers are painting after the panels are up (more expensive/time consuming).
    You might be able to determine what carrier it is by a sign that's probably posted near that 'tree' where the gear/fencing is on the ground. As far as panels go... unless its AWS/PCS, I'd say probably not T-Mobile.
    Sprint/T-Mobile typically have panels of different sizes (PCS/AWS = short.. band 12/71 = long), while AT&T in most areas have 2-4 panels of the same length. VZW... similar to AT&T in many areas.. but not all.
    I'm guessing AT&T.
    AT&T... your world, throttled.

    It's easier to guess based on the region and the spectrum that is allocated in the region. So, in my area- T-Mobile often has 3 to 4 identical panels because they only have B2/B4 spectrum. ATT will have a whole bunch of sizes, some even have the Eyeball Antenna. Verizon has two short AWS antennas and one long B12 antenna. USCellular will have a similar look as Verizon. Sprint usually has one single antenna or two antennas of the same size. Sprint will sometimes have a microwave antenna in addition to their cellular antennas. It just all depends.

    Cell Mapper will allow you to see what has already been determined as a T-Mobile tower. If the already determined tower looks like this one, than it is likely the same carrier.

    I am guessing the transit to the top of the tower and the adjustments for mounting and aiming could scratch the paint off.

    I expect the antennas are smooth plastic and not meant to be painted...Some of the pictures show a glossy automotive type finish being used.

    Or else they just drench the entire tower in brown paint...cables and all....

    No. It’s AT&T. I’ll send you a PM. I know exactly where that is.

    A newer solution for the monopines is a cover that slips over the antennas that also has the fake green leaves on it. Much easier to deal with than painting the antenas after the fact and honestly it looks better too.

    No it's far back. See the picture I posted of it on the last page.
