That is a Scottsdale Police Communications repeater. It is located on the mountain just north of Thompson's Peak in the Northeast Valley. The LZ was a small flattened pad which dropped away to the front and the rear. It was 4500ft MSL. Considering the valley is around 1200-1400 MSL it was a really cool view. We had to take a tech up there to make sure it was still working right. It had not been checked in like ten years. Everything looked good.
