Verizon Site (Band A?)- an older one - just across the Buchanan Co line in Andrew County on Rt. DD Extreme close-up of antenna - no spiffy panel antennas - look at those radiation elements - with a bit of a downtilt Just in case you don't believe whose tower it is - with the call sign KNLG321 on the door!

You can hardly see this one from Cook Rd - have to go on via Green Valley Here's a close-up of the Cook Rd site Here's a long shot of the Haug Radio shop at I-29 and 71, looks like some cell there - FCC INFO HERE

Haug has Kenwood, Motorola, paging, broadband wireless Internet etc. Here's a cell site on the former Green Acres retirement home site - until the home was closed, 5215 Green Acres Rd. It's just inside Buchanan County. Look Carefully at the top of the pole - FCC details here

Funny story: the tower co wanted to put 2 sets of antennas at a taller height but Buchanan County said NO - so they just chopped off the top section. Looks silly! Now owned by AAT. FCC INFO HERE This site is East of I-29 on 169 but almost in line with Eagle Radio KFEQ's AM 680 towers across West of I-29. Also set up to be part of the City's 860 MHz system - but US Cellular is owner And a close-up of the site - the tower is vertical - the camera wasn't! FCC INFO HERE

Near I-29 and Frederick Ave needed a tower for its STL's so it made a deal with Roberts Towers as a cell site - see more pix of this tower on the non-cell page
