    Default Antennae Farms In Your Area

    Does your city have antennae farms. My hometown Houston has a large one near Missouri City, which is southwest of Houston. They are a bunch of antennaes there. Mostly tall ones. They are used for television and radio. Also, there is a weather radar there. The tallest one is almost 2,000 feet. There are a bunch of others over a thousand feet. One of them reminds me of the late World Trade Center twin towers . The antennae complex is called Senior Road Tower Group or Missouri City Transmission Center. In Austin, there is antennae farm on top of Mt. Larson west of Austin. Its easily visible on top of Mt. Bonnell, highest point in Austin. The tallest one is taller than the Empire State Building, at 1,299 feet high. The antennae on top of Mt. Larson would be outsized by the late World Trade Center.

    The tallest of these antennae is outside of a small town in South Dakota; it's about 2160 feet tall, the tallest man-made structure on Earth. *There was another tower in the former Soviet Union that was even taller, but it was destroyed in a storm.

    South of downtown Phoenix,atop South Mountain,there is a huge antennae farm.It must have 15-20 of them.Whenever the smog clears enough so you can see them,they're very impressive.
    Must be a lot of folks communicating in Phoenix.
