Camouflage: Monopoles with close mounted panels

A monopole with close (or flush) mounted panels is essentially a compromise between a typical bracketed monopole and a flagpole. The brackets used are either much smaller than the typical monopole, or the panels are directly attached to the pole itself. In either case, the cellular panels are much closer to the monopole, which considerably decreases its visual profile, especially from longer distances.


The close mounted pole is easier for the cellular provider to maintain and is more practical for co-location opportunities than a flagpole design, but like the flagpole design the monopole with close mounted panels requires a greater vertical height to house the same number of antennas.
