Microwave Radio Transmission Relays in Iowa
Hello? Can you hear me? Chances are that the cellular phone that you use to talk to your blogger buddies are supported by traditional land lines, cellular towers and microwave relay towers like this one in eastern Iowa. These towers are placed on hills and generally aimed at other towers located in line of sight. This particular tower is newer than most and placed in a partly wooded area by the Maquoketa Caves State Park. Hopefully the hibernating bats don't get mixed up signals as they take to the skies after their winter nap.
