How do you people get so close to the towers to take pictures?

Recommended Posts

Because after i saw people getting some pictures of there local sprint towers i was like hmm that might be good to go and see if they added or upgraded anything.


Needless to say when i actually found a tower (thanks to a crappy app from the market) i found that there was a "Private Property" sign at the beginning of the drive and i couldnt get anywhere near the tower. OFC i still took some pictures with my phone but it being so far off you cant really see anything.


ALSO i was so mad i forgot to take a speed test.


and was up. i been lurking here for a week or two and just registered.

Welcome to the site, its a wonderful place to be and filled with all sorts of great information. As far as tower location it really depends. Some towers, like in your particular case may not be accessible but others are right there in the open. For example, the closest tower to me is in the back parking lot of a hooters restaurant. The tower itself is fenced off of course but I can walk all around it and take as many pics as I like. There is another one a few miles away that right behind a kmart store that anyone can walk up to, so it just depends.

yup muffinman explains it right...all depends on the location. Some they fence off the driveway to it, and some there is just a fence around the base of the tower...all depends on the surrounding area and whats feasible for them to do...

    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
    • I believe one of the merger conditions was they had offer to sell it to Dish.  EDIT: Oops didn't see that this had already been answered.
