White Mountain, Rock Springs side, note this page may be a bit large and therefore take longer to load on slower connections.
There are 4 antennas and one signal bouncer on White Mountain's RS side. We will be going from south to north.
Description....The smaller antenna on the left is owned by the BLM and is used by Union Telephone as a celluar relay. The taller tower to the right is described a ways below in this page.
Looking up at the Union telephone tower. The top bays are the celluar extensions.
After searching this registration # seen on the door of the building for UnTel it came up being owned by the BLM. Thats wierd, although they do show three other sites in SW County.
Ok, now the taller tower
This is the base of the large tower. This tower is owned and operated by Sweetwater Television (cable) inc. The main responsibility of this tower and its base relays is to recieve television stations from the Evanston relay. Evanston picks up almost all of Salt Lake Citys TV reception. This tower basically is the transciever of those signals. It relays the rx to the studios in downtown RS and walla, you've got KSL on cable now! The next few pictures show the tower and several details.
Here is another view of the tower.
Yet another tower feature

And last but not least, a buried tower that serves for nothing but a lightning rod.
This tower is considered by some as a lighting rod and has no broadcasts radiating from it what so ever.
