    They removed the temporary tower and seemed to have stuck the old panels on the new tower (B2/B4). They are still doing work so I hope for more.

    Updated pic attached. I'm starting to wonder if it was all just about aesthetics as I've not seen any new bands pop up on it yet. At least the old panels are maybe 10' higher? They are putting on the branches now, so I guess they are done with the panels for the moment, but it can support many more now.

    Hmph. Well, at least it looks mostly like a tree. I saw some BAD palm trees in Phoenix last week. We also have some bad pine trees in Wisconsin.

    Here's the final result... for now. No new bands, as of a week ago, just was made into the tree.

    Well, they pulled branches off the tree again and installed these on the 3 sides. Looks like the same band and not a low band. Does anyone know what these are? I heard another carrier was going to co-locate w/TMo here, so this might have all been about another carrier and TMo is along for the ride? TMo didn't do any upgrades as noted before, well other than being a little higher on the tree.

    Any comments on the types of panels above? I still don't think they are live yet (they are still working on them).

    *And I still don't know why my portrait pics keep getting rotated.

    They finished the "leaves" and painted them green, but I don't see any new signals from this site yet. Might it be a while before they will turn it on?

    Let me see if this works. I zoomed in the pic above and hopefully it's landscape orientation now. This is all covered now, but I need to get a close-up pic again.

    That looks like a modern Verizon site
    AT&T... your world, throttled.

    You are right. Confirmed, Verizon just a few minutes ago. Looks like 2, 4/66 & 13 (at least). I didn't see 5. No sign of AT&T there and apparently TMo was just along for the ride. No upgrades from them so far other than a little more height. It was a TMo only site before this.
