2018 is off to a great start here in the office, the shop and out in the field for our Sales Representatives! We’ve been busy and want to give you a quick recap of what we’ve been up to and what we’ve got up our sleeves for the next few months!

“Custom” could be considered the same as “character” when it comes to our concealments. Poles and trees are great, but we really like to focus on the super unique aspects of what we can do.
We pride ourselves on the panelized concealments. This could be any one of our products that include our exclusive panels – screen walls, side-mounted boxes, chimneys, cupolas, bell towers, silos and more! The designs allow for optimum signal transmission. That makes RF engineers happy, and our aesthetics satisfy even the most discerning zoning board. But for the residents of the communities, we have two goals in mind.
- Communities the coverage they desire without sacrificing the beauty of their skyline.
- From historic to urban to farm, we strive to ensure that each concealment is going to blend well with its surroundings and match existing buildings flawlessly.
Check out our Wireless Concealments Map to see what we’ve done across the United States. Spoiler alert…there’s at least one in every single state!
Are you ready to get started on a unique site? Contact your Local Sales Representative to talk through the options today!
This March we’ll be showcasing a tower a day for 31 days! Knowing your options is one of the most important pieces of the concealment puzzle. While monopines and poles are popular options, where we shine is the really tough stuff! Custom towers, rooftops, and silos provide a great concealment opportunity in a myriad of places.
We’ve done 20,000+ concealed sites in our 25+ years of business. As the industry founder, we continuously strive to produce the highest quality and top-performing concealment products, through the world-class integration of dedicated employees, innovative design, and cost-effective materials.
Follow along on our social sites [Facebook, Instagram, Twitter] for a visual tour of what a wireless cell tower should look like! Visit our Custom Concealments product page for more information!
We’re so grateful that so many people have been following along on our first giveaway, following our Instagram and tagging your friends. With so many different product types and customization options, we hope you learned a thing or two about the options that STEALTH can provide to disguise wireless antennas in your city. We know you love your skyline and so do we!
Now for the fun part…We’ve had almost 150 people enter our Instagram giveaway. Using a random generator to keep it fair, we’ve narrowed down the drawing down to six people and LIVE on Instagram we chose a winner. Congratulations, Jorge Chapa [@J_chapa85]. We’ll be mailing out your brand new YETI Roadie 20 this week. We hope you enjoy it!
Stay tuned for more Instagram giveaways in the future!
Valentine’s Day has us feeling a little sentimental today, so we’ve asked a few members of the STEALTH® team what sites they’ve fallen head over heels for! Why not look back on some of our favorite projects and share our love for them? See which sites were their favorites and why they’re so special to us!
1. Eagan Sperry – Eagan, MN
This very special, 179′ tall tower, has held the #1 spot in the hearts of many of our team members for the past year. The reason is pretty obvious! This tower contains a total of 185 LED lights (5,400 bulbs) that were installed throughout the panels. Programmed to run an infinite amount of color combinations, it can color coordinate with any holiday, special event or Michigan team win.
2. American School For The Deaf – West Hartford, CT
A custom tower that truly is perfect for its location. The tower is 268′ tall, houses three carrier antennas and even the clocks are custom! The numbers on the faces are the hand signs actually used in sign language. Perfect for the students who will be reading it! It’s amazing that we can still surprise and delight our customers!
3. SAL Crossing – Riverton, UT
This faux wood water tank could fool anyone! Not only is is not real wood, but would you believe it was hand-painted by our incredible in-house artists. The water tank stands 80′ tall and measures approximately 18′ in diameter!
4. Quinnipiac University – Hamden, CT
A super unique octagonal rooftop concealment is made up of RF friendly brick, tiling and corbels. A perfect match for the very unique architecture of the existing building. This stunning rooftop is 36.5′ long x 26′ wide x 10′ tall. We always love when we can help ensure that a campus stays beautiful and concealed.
5. Neptune – Newport, KY
These two rooftop replacements do more than just hide antennas. The original, historical design of this building was restored with these additions. The RF friendly slate shingle and design were based on the original architecture.
Buzzing with indie boutiques, eclectic food trucks, high end restaurants, local markets, music and more, Portland, Oregon’s historic downtown district just wouldn’t be the same if these antennas were left exposed. The perfect solution? Our custom water tank!
We have to say, this is definitely one of our favorite new concealments. This modern faux water tank design blends perfectly into Portland’s skyline. Custom painted by our in-house artist, this concealment measures 47.1′ in diameter and 13′ tall. Everything from the banding to the bolts, to the radius panels is RF friendly. The best part about this project…with our ingenuity, we were able to expedite the concealment to meet the client’s strict deadline. Check out the final product in our site installation video.

We have all heard that the industry is moving toward 5G. There has been endless speculation as to the who, what, where and why of it. While our nation’s capital works with municipalities and the carriers to streamline the roll-out, Qualcomm has been working on the logistics on how to get it done. Thankfully, their studies show that we have more of a head start than we originally thought! It seems that the bands above 24GHZ (a.k.a. mmWave) and the advancements in antenna technologies (5G New Radio) can work with EXISTING LTE Macro and small cell sites (such as the one shown here in Williamsport, PA) to provide expansive outdoor coverage. This is great news to data consumers and to those tasked with getting this network in place!
With all the buzz in Vegas at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) last week, we’re being reminded about the concealments we’ve built in the area, along with just how much signal it takes to keep a venue of that size connected. Where there is a large crowd, there is a lot of data being consumed!
Cox Communications was the infrastructure supplier for this “techy” tradeshow. Inside Towers reported that CES 2017 showed more than 6.4 terabytes of data was used on their wifi network at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This included activity from approximately 200,000 connected devices and we wouldn’t be surprised if 2018 tops those numbers.
With CES being the launch stage for most new electronics on the market, it only makes sense that one of the biggest topics in the wireless world would be discussed, but not as much as was anticipated. Venture Beat mentioned last week that 5G isn’t dominating CES 2018, but will rule CES 2019, stating that “the hardware is simply not ready yet. But it will be soon.” Looks like we’ll have to wait until next year to see that technology fully in action.
Did you go to CES 2018? What were your favorite products? We’ve seen everything from virtual reality headsets and google assistants with built-in displays to bigger and better TV’s & refrigerators. The better question is…what will you consider purchasing? Find a great list from USA Today on 10 Products from CES 2018 [they] Would Buy Today.
As the year comes quickly to a close, we have one more Quarterly Newsletter to send your way. We’re not sure how 2017 went by so fast, but as we’re looking back on all of the projects completed throughout the last 12 months, we’re reminded how thankful we are to our customers and team members.
