A 3 Pole of Wonder

My new mast was objected to on the original planning application with:


"tampon on a stick" 🀣 also not only does he not want a bigger tampon on a stick, he wants the current one taken down as well.
Would be great if all the masts were removed and he had no mobile signal whatsoever, he sure doesn't deserve one.

What a total plonker.

I'm glad we had no complaints regarding my 3 pole of wonder, just a positive comment saying how it would benefit the area tremendously.

I wonder who made that comment.:unsure:;)☺️

(Thanks to Gavin suggesting that I make a comment)(y)

Well today is the last of 3 where they install the AAU. Anyone got any idea roughly how long it takes before it goes live?

Hmmm I've got a 3rd page listed on the roadworks website today for starting on the 15th November.

Rigging, integration and testing within existing telecoms site.

Will that be adding the antennas do you think folks, or just filling the cabinets with the gubbins? :unsure:

Or am I just being a bit too optimistic.😊

I'd think it'd be antenna adds - feels like you should be optimistic!
I must admit it does seem to be coming along nicely Gavin, just hope it's not all completed and nothing happens for months on end.

I will take your advice and be optomistic though. (y)☺️

Not sure why it's taking so long?

VF/3/EE are slapping masts up around here at stupid rate. They're normally done over a period of two days (VF) and 2-4 days EE/3, whether it takes them that long or not, I'm not entirely sure?

There's another 3 one due to be done and up around the middle of this month. Planning was only approved 3 weeks ago too.

Well I certainly hope it's as speedy as that, but 2 days maybe just for mast raising.

Must take a while after that to get things all hunky dory for switch on time you'd think.

I mean there's a 10 day window alone for Scottish Power to just lay power trunking for it apparently.

Anyway, I'm still getting excited about it.😊

Deffo takes a while, initial underground work and cabinets went in on mine middle of August, mast went up a couple of weeks ago and there's no 5G signal as yet...

That's why i like the VF coverage checker. Tells you whats happening within the next 3 months. Tends to be quite accurate too
