      People, We're talking MICROWAVE TOWERS, not cell sites.

      I've seen some pretty hokey camouflaged sites before. Who ever saw
      an arrow straight, perfectly symmetrical, flawlessly manicured pine
      tree? Mother Mature doesn't make that model.

      Though their web site is having some issues, Larson Camouflage has
      become quite skilled at developing stealth
      towers. http://www.utilityc amo.com/index. html I've seen one of the
      Saguaro cactus towers in Fountain Hills, AZ (near me), and it blended
      in very well. It nearly fooled me, and most observers would never
      notice it at all.

      The ones that really have me laughing my a$$ off are the NIMBYs who
      will viciously block any tower, but just love that new church steeple
      that was donated (and pays the church $1200/mo.). Some people...

      Most of my friends think I'm weird for actively looking for
      infrastructure elements. I know I'm in good company here... :-)
