What is that big black communicatoins tower on the corner of Eglinton and Pharmacy Ave, ? How high is it?
I thought someone was telling me that it is the "Bell East" tower that TPS uses currently?wheelchair said:Used to drive past that beast every day. As I recall, it belongs to Bell Canada. It was a commercial repeater tower and had many users on it. It was also one of Bells original cellular sites and the old metro police radios had space on there as well. I think it might have even had long distance relay dishes on it at one point. Many years since I've seen it now. Not sure on the height but I'd guess in the 150 ft range. If memory serves there is a huge Bell telephone exchange building right close to it as well.
A great landmark but it used to generate a ton of intermod.
It's the Bell tower and it's a dual TPS site, among other things.Well, i didnt mean to start a frenzy of where exactly the bell tower location is. I just wondered about what exactly that black tower i described early, what its functions were.
No, pathalogical is just using a poorly marked map to confuse us.If some of u are indicating that the actually TPS site is further down by a few blocks,
Back in its prime, it was full of microwave gear.just wondered what that tower is, that i mentioned. Its structure is pretty massive, looks like an old style tower, upon inspection u can notice a few microwave horn guides.
Well, the Bell tower, 10 Glen Everest and 275 Main St. are all about 2 km from St. Clair East and only the Bell tower is a "tower", so I'm wondering what site you're referring to?TPS site tower is located off of St Clair E.
That map has the tip of the tower (rather than the base) in roughly the right place. BTW, it's _Ashtonbee_ Rd.As for the map, it says that the location is marked as st clair, between warden and victoria park. So the map must have it wrong in its marked location.
TAFL says it's over 150m.How high is it?
Now now now, I wasn't trying to confuse anyone, that's the only one I was able to find. The link slicerwizard provided, now THAT'S a map.slicerwizard said:It's the Bell tower and it's a dual TPS site, among other things.
