Interesting Microwave Antennas in the Wild
I take pictures of pretty much everything because I have
a really bad memory and digital pictures are basically free, so why
not? I'm also kind of in to my job, so whenever I see an interesting
microwave antenna I take a lot of pictures. Each one of these leads to
a detail gallery with high resolution pics.
Up close and personal with a Valmont Microflect passive
repeater. Added June 2018.
Found in the absolute middle of nowhere. Possibly
partially abandoned, but definitely interesting, it features one 30
meter dish and three smaller ones, as well as an assortment of
old AT&T horn antennas. Added May, 2018.
There are a lot of these still standing in West Virginia
because once something gets built here, it never gets taken down. This
is a particularly interesting example because it has two different
types of original antennas and most of the original waveguide. Added
More updated version of the above, with the horns
replaced by a massive 15' Andrew dish. Added February 2016.
A relatively new downlink earth station for controlling
and gathering data from NOAA's fleet of next generation weather
satellites with three 20 meter
dishes. Added June, 2016.
A NASA building with a couple of really nice satellite
antennas, including this 10 meter Andrew dish. Added June, 2016.
No idea what's under it, but it's pretty interesting.
