    Micro wave horns on top. Cell antennae below them.

    Verizon has similar horn antennas for their backhaul.

    That was my first thought—it's either that sort of shape or the concrete silos:

    These used to be scattered around, about 20 miles apart. AT&T Long Lines C-band microwave site. The big things that look like ice cream cones are C-band horns (like microwave dishes but sideways). These used to be the main long-distance connections in the days before fiber optic cables. Most have had their horns removed and are now just big towers. I don't know if AT&T still owns them or if they were sold to tower companies. It appears that this one has some cellular-type panel antennas partially obscured by the trees.
