Good evening everyone, (if this is in the wrong thread please feel free to move)... Took a hike up Black Mountain earlier today, located in Northern San Diego County near Rancho Penasquitos for those of you familiar with the area. While I went for the adventure and views, the various microwave towers and satellite dishes up there sparked my interest. As I explored around, I noticed most of the microwave towers (if that's what you call them), were owned by the telecommunications companies, even with former companies such as Cingular there, now taken over by AT&T. As for the satellite dishes seen in the photos here, there were no markings whatsoever about who owned them or even if they are used anymore. They are located in large compound on the summit located behind a gate which shows AT&T emergency contact info, but would that company have any use for 5 dishes up there? What kind of use would they be for on such a remote summit? The only other mountain top that I can recall here locally that has dishes on it, is Mt. San Miguel in South County, home of KNSD's transmitter and dishes. I would highly doubt these ones specifically on Black Mountain are for that use. More importantly, any locals around here in the SAN area know of any local TV stations using this peak for their services? I'm planning on going back up there again, so if there's any transmitter or receivers to look for, let me know and I'll try to pay more attention to them. I've also posted a few random pics of the dishes and whatnot up on the tower, for those of you who enjoy that kind of stuff.
