    T-Mobile Tower Migration in Gap, PA

    Looks like T-Mobile is moving their antennas off of the Route 30 Silo onto the AT&T tower behind the Gap Park.

    How close to each other were these antennas before? Towers are often leased with multiple carriers.

    The silo tower is within half a mile of the other tower. I expect that one is coming down.
    The T-Mobile one is being below an AT&T rack on the monopole, so they will be sharing the monopole.

    Appears to be a Crown Castle Tower.

    I know, I thought Verizon right away, but the Meter says T-Mobile as well as AT&T and AT&T has been there for ages.

    The silo is a confirmed T-Mobile tower as I spoke to the tower techs when there was an outage. BTW the silo does not have Battery or a Generator but the monopole has two generators.

    The Silo and Mono-pole are within half a mile of each other.

    Are all Tmobile antennas on a "circle" type setup vs a "triangle" like setup?

    I just checked and it appears like T-Mobile uses Triangle platforms as well.

    I guess a circle has more room for antennas then a triangle. (It seems like the Circumradius of a triangle is greater than the perimeter of a triangle... https://study.com/academy/lesson/how...-triangle.html)

    It would be neat to identify them by their platform, just like Verizon towers used to be said to be red and white lattice structures.

    The experts can tell by the brand of radio head, but all I can figure out is the label on the electric meter.
