Combination Masts

Hi all!

Long time unregistered lurker. first time poster.

Inspired by @Jeffrey’s Mast van de maand post about the WAS-pole / telecommunication antenna combination and casually mentioning there are 4-5 of this sites around & running accidentally to @The_Wireless_Guy’s post about a few others. I tried to see what I could find.

It looks like Oxperts Antenna Sites. B.V has been redeveloping a few originally for Tele2 and now for KPN. They mention “Since 2012 Oxperts Antenna Sites has redeveloped 11 WAS-towers for mobile operators and 35 WAS-towers for an IoT-provider.”

I was able to find a few sites they had contacted the local authorities about redeveloping the WAS-poles. But no antennas seem to be installed or at least I far I could tell. Not in antennakart , neither on cellmapper, nor on street view. But also like half of those street views are from 2010.

And now there is a permit for the construction of a "combi-mast met verlichting, sirenes en een antenne-installatie voor mobiele telecommunicatie” in The Hague.

I was wondering if you guys know any other sites ? And if there is any diversity in the antenna installations or if basically due to the monopole they all operate more or less the same ?

The Hague site is close to me so I will try to keep an eye for the construction! Get some picture if anyone is interested!

Eemnes, Broek op Langedijk and Giesbeek were all in development stage for Tele2 but were never built. Their development was not taken over by T-Mobile with the T-Mobile/Tele2 merger.

The mast in Nunhem might be one for KPN looking the their masts in this area.

The location in The Hague is a strange one. KPN and T-Mobile just occupied a newly built mast end 2019/mid 2020 in the woods near this address.
See Google streetview where you just can see T-Mobiles and KPNs antennes peaking above the trees:

From the “bekendmakingen” page you will not finder the requestor. I also doubt it will be Voadfone as they would neatly fit on the mast between the antennas of T-Mobile and KPN. You will indeed have to follow the progress by visiting the place.
