BarTender:andrewcnz:BarTender:eXDee: In more than one location in Hamilton, these are pointing to existing sites which i believe are Vodafone sites?
Sharing the towers more than i thought...
These are Microwave sites, so may or may not necessarily be "future" cellsite locations since they could be bouncing a microwave link off an existing site. But you would assume these site's are coloates ;)

Time will tell.
The Telecom tower is a large old school microwave link site(dish removed many years ago) in Tauranga south a quite tall lattice structure. Telecom have a cell site at the very top(CDMA/WCDMA) and Vodafone have equipment half way up and at bottom(3G 2100). A logical 2degrees site for central avenues coverage.
The other site is a newer Vodafone tower with a mono pole design with a lattice extension at top. Vodafone gear at top with a decent gap below for other equipment.
I think I found the Telecom Tower.
And the Google Maps all sites shows the Vodafone 36279 site more accurately than the Telecom location 15700.
I've e-mailed RSM folks and ask them why they don't re-using their existing locationids so people (ie me) know when they have Co-located services.
Yeah thats the Telecom site, the Vodafone site is not on Google maps(pictures are too old).
