Thanks very much for putting that together. The WIMAX antenna is facing north towards the hospital, LE and a local NBC affiliate... which all geographically run in a straight line. Do you suppose one or all have access to the antenna???

Here's my guess.


Those types of fiberglass antenna are commonly, (not always) used for industrial WIFI. An array is a little unusual for omni directional antenna, so they could be WIMAX

You can see an example of a WIMAX antenna here and here

Hard to tell just by looking at it.


I've been trying to figure out if it's for public use... and my guess is that it's not... and the signals are encrypted. I'm betting that LE and other emergency entities have recently upgraded in our area and are now trunked. I know that they weren't before... because I had recently checked to see if they were.

For general knowledge... IEEE 802.11
