I see that antennas have finally been added to the cell tower that's across the street from Premier Spirits, just east of C'sted. Anyone know which carrier(s) is(are) going to be on it?

Another cell tower was erected yesterday at Cheeseburgers In Paradise. Looks to be about an 80 footer. I am told that it is for AT&T which is good news for east end users. I am surprised they allowed them to install it so close to the power lines.

You would think that they could have found a slightly less conspicuous location. Kind of just jumps out at you.

I don't see how this tower will fill in the dead zone near Cotton Valley Shores/ Soplitude.

My Dad finally was able to visit me a few months back. He was upset and taking it kind of personal that I'm hard to get ahold of most of the time and din't believe me about internet, phone or even electric services. Until he stayed at Carambola Golf Club and spent a lot of time with me here in the Rain forest. haha. He gets it now.

the Cheeseburgers tower is terrifyingly close to the WAPA lines.
a really, really bad idea to put a tower there.
(and I know towers)

Why are they allowed to do such stupid things? It serves no purpose and creates dangerous situations.
