    Got 4 of 5, looking for the RC flying field with signage.

    Requires me to do a nice 200 mile ride North, but it's been colder than I like for that lately. I really prefer 50's at least for longer rides these days.

    I found 3 today and the wild card, but no joy on Mercedes dealer or cellular antennas not on a tower. I did find a Carlock/Toyota dealer where you can order/buy just about any brand, but they are not technically a Mercedes dealer. Nearest ones are 80 & 90 miles away. Too far for today's ride. I'll keep looking for cellular antennas not on a tower, but we have a LOT of cell towers around here. You can sometimes see three at once.

    Look closely at any water towers you see. That is the most common "not cell tower" that comes to mind for me.

    I agree, and we have lots of water towers here in flatistan, but it's not a common practice here. Many of the water towers are shorter than average cell towers. You will literally see a cell tower next to a water tower.

    I will continue to look. I hunted up some cell site maps and so far it's all towers, even downtown where building mounted cell repeaters are typically common. Nothing tall enough in Tupelo. :fpalm I may have to ride up to TN to the Mercedes dealer.

    I did find a Military Sat antenna trailer, but haven't seen a dedicated cellular trailer yet.

    I went scouting in the car today. Different directions than I had gone before and I located a couple of water towers with cell antennas on them and a single antenna on a church. Raining all day so far, so when the rain stops I'll go get pictures if no one else has grabbed this yet.

    Exactly, if you can't get one of the 5, the wildcard substitutes.

    Thanks, looks like a good game. I saw the Mercedes dealer as the worst of the bunch so nicely played.
