Why Cell Towers Keep Getting More Complex

This cell tower looms over our village hall and it keeps getting more complex as more carrier companies add their antennae to the central lattice-type tower.

The first company to set up there received the highest space, and newer carriers have added their equipment on triangular arrays farther down the structure. The antennas are the vertical segments. They both transmit and receive signals from your cell phone.

I liked the way the hot sun flare burned through the wires and antennas and set them on fire, coloristically speaking. 

See how the same cell tower looked 11 years ago in a previous post.

Lovely Painting James! It's fun to think about what it might look like in another 10 years from now.

I was looking through my blog feed and thought you might enjoy these vintage photos Linemen in the 1900s .
