new microwave tower shots
- Over the weekend, I tracked down some additional Long Lines MW towers
in this (Utah and Nevada) area, and took a few pictures. Additionally, I
spent a few hours
following a road that seems to follow a major telecommunications route.
WillTel, Worldcom, AT&T all have fiber buried here; AT&T SLC to
Los Angeles MW passed through here, as did their Denver to Oakland lower
route. FAA's towers basically follow this route,
as well as who knows how many other groups.
As I passed, I noticed five crews laying a new fiber line to the
side of the Union Pacific railroad.
If you're interested, you can find the towers referenced from the URL:
I have a few others to check out over the next couple of months; most of
towers are in the middle of nowhere, and so will be insulated from
Tower's conversion efforts for a while. Others are in prime space, so I
try and visit those towers first. At any rate, if you're a tower junkie,
take a look.
