Location: Atop Redonda Mesa along the southern end of the Elsinore Mountains in southwestern Riverside County, California. About 11 miles west of Temecula. Somewhat remote.
LAT/LONG: 33.49486 -117.34567
Paths: Oceanside and San Clemente.
Notes: Redonda Mesa was a more recent addition to the AT&T microwave network having been constructed after 1980. The unique tower design was most likely chosen for aesthetic reasons yet the tower is located in a rural setting with mainly horse ranches surrounding the area. Nonetheless a neat and "modern" tower design.
