European Mobile Equipment Pictures

The United Kingdom has several different GSM providers offering services in both the 900 and 1800 MHz bands.
>Residential mobile sites are much more common in Europe and with the dense housing sites are often much closer together than North American standards and cells are kept quite low to avoid interferences between distant sites. These cells were found in a residential neighbourhood of Oxford.

>>More cells above the Oxford Famine Relief Building in Oxford

>Some low-rise building cells in London

VPico cells are very common in Europe. These two pico cells were found on the ceiling at one of the departure lounges at Heathrow.

These are just a few of the cell pictures I have snapped while traveling in Europe in 2002.

VVarious cells on a building in downtown Frankfurt.
>Some GSM cell sites while searching for a place to eat lunch in Paris (or drink wine with a little food?).
>>Some more cell sites in Paris, just above elevated portion of the Metropolitan.
