    What do t-mobile towers look like?

    I've just always wondered.

    Towers, repeaters, whatever you want to call them. I've never seen any kind of a wireless telecommunications or mobile phone service antenna apparatus, so if anyone has any pictures, especially of T-Mobile or Voicestream sites, please post.. or take a picture, and post.

    Slightly related link: www.t-mobiletowers.com

    Thanks in advance for satisfying my curiosity.
    I just can't bring myself to sell my cell..

    Brad,

    here are some URLs of cell towers in the UK:

    This will give you an idea of what the cells look like, there are several different kinds.

    Also,

    Here's some pics of Fido's cell equipment up in Canada.

    I don't think there's one specific type, brad. I think they can range from your basic monopole design to the big 3 - panel arrays.

    Ha ha! I can't believe how many people replied to you and didn't answer this question...Yes, they are incredibly phallic...and also, just as an FYI...T-Mobile's are slightly larger than all the other carriers...or so it has been rumoured!

    There is a tower down the street from where I live. It's ugly as hell but I ALWAYS have full signal in my house.

    I wish there was a map with dots on it so I could see where all the towers are at.
