Public Safety and Transportation Operations Center
Our project involved the installation of antennas and coaxial cables on the roof of the newly completed PSTOC, and 96 antennas and coaxial cables on the monopole. Five cables ran to the top mounted antennas, and the monopole received runs to each platform antenna mounting location. All work was performed by hand with a rope and pulley, to decrease the likelihood of damage to the other coaxial cables.
The custom antenna mounts and cable brackets were all delivered to the customer on site by USTS, and the top of the pole was rigged to a small gin-pole to enable access to the four platforms. Multiple coaxial cables were pulled through complex conduits from the radio rooms to the roof, and into the monopole. The tower was analyzed according to ANSI/TIA-222-G standards, and took 8 months to complete.
