China Cellular System Antenna Towers

During the last few months, I have been on a fairly time consuming assignment in China. It didn’t give me much time to look around, but given my interest in technology ¬†and telecommunications, I did manage to get some photos of Chinese cellular system antenna towers.

One of the most difficult issues in getting these pictures was blue sky. I was based on the outskirts of  Nanjing, a couple of hours west of Shanghai, where a blue sky was rare. Most of the time it was grey, and often turned black in the city.

The cell towers tended to come in three configurations:- the conventional 3 sector monopole tower seen around the world, the lattice tower, and the stacked pole tower which I have only seen in China.

Most of the cellular telecom towers in China are 3G, with some running WCDMA, and some CDMA.

These images are part of my Technology Photography collection, with more cellular antenna tower images.
