People complain to much about how they look! I like towers monopoles are the best looking.  There is a tree one two towns over looks nice but its like 100 ft over tree lines so you know what it is lol.  Good find though

The tower by me is a truss-style tower and it was put up just a few years ago..probably the tallest tower in my area cause you can see it towering over everything from 3 to 4 miles away and I can look at it from my bedroom window but is a good 3/4 mile from my home.

The Cactus and flagpole seems to be the best disguise for the cell towers. The others are hit or miss. We have 3 flagpoles around here, all are owned by T-Mobile. Before I got into the cellphone thing I actually believed they were just flagpoles... (I also didn't pay much attention either) They do have the densest coverage here because of their use of those flagpoles, since they had no problem putting them right in neighborhoods.

    • New oddity since the Feb security patch and a carrier services upgrade, no matter if Wifi is turned on or off, I'm seeing a Wifi 4 connection to an unknown ssid.  Airplane mode, etc didn't get rid of it. Connecting to my home wifi (which turned into Wifi 5) then disconnecting resolved the issue. Not sure where/why the ghost was coming from
    • Digging permits for fiber/power pulled by T-Mobile. American Tower sites are just easy to look up since we can find where they are easy enough.
    • Where do you get new tower plans for American Tower? Do they show on the American Tower Site Locator map?    Also, here’s a map of permits across Northwest Ohio (Lucas County) if anyone’s interested 😁 https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/2/edit?mid=1-qgOcMVOnqW4b9-HhUDc7AGxbRLqn48&usp=sharing
    • That's a decent number of new sites. Nebraska is likely the oddest market in the country, as T-Mobile didn't exist here until a few years ago. Until last summer, their footprint didn't really extend much out of Omaha, Sprint had a much larger footprint. But I'd like to think that their aggressive expansion here is a signal that they intend to follow through on their rural expansion plans. Given the number of American Tower sites that we know they are targeting across NE, KS, MO, IA, AR and IL, it does seem that they have an expansion plan ready to go. Unfortunately we haven't done any digging for the OH area so I don't have any details there for you.
    • Here are the new sites in the Toledo area from the last few years. All of these are Sprint conversions, and they still have a few more Sprint sites to convert
