    Does this one have both CDMA and IDEN? Very few flagpoles are synergy sites but this one looks like it’s tall enough to house both.

    I first discovered the planned construction of this site from the FCC ASR website last year. The applicant was listed as Nextel. When I was in Virginia City last weekend I did not have a Nextel phone, but I had a Sprint phone – in which I confirmed there’s definitely a Sprint signal coming from the site. The building looks like a typical Nextel structure. The closest I got to the site was what you see in the picture – zoomed in on my digital camera.
