I like towers of all sorts. Filmed with my P3S no filter.

Nice Video - I assume the cell tower did not cause any transmission interference!

I like it! Like Leftyguy, I was wondering the same thing. I've been hesitant to fly near some water towers due to the Cell antennas pasted all over them. Did you see any warnings? With you on the tower likes.

Additionally, how far were you from the Joint Base? I wanted to try and fly over Browns Mills lakes, but I figured it would be too close. What do you think?

Flying that close to a tower with a P3S is brave - good job though!

I don't know exactly what kind of tower this is but I do not think it's a cell tower. I had no problems around it and no warnings popped up.  I thought this was just outside of the Joint base restriction but I recently tried the B4UFLY app and it looks like it might not be
I have flown near a cell tower once and didn't have any problem with interference. I will try to find that video

It’s a microwave tower, but there are cellular antennas about midway up. They’re the vertical white antennas on horizontal racks of three each, four sets on an angle around the tower.

It does not matter, cellular transmissions are not near the same frequency as we use on our aircraft.

Good job. How high was the tower, out of interest?   Shame about the "music"    Thanks for the share.
