Downers Grove Antennae Tower

I've been noticing a big microwave tower south of the CB&Q tracks between Washington Street and Maple Avenue, so I went there to find out who owns it. It turns out it is more of an antennae tower than a microwave tower because it has only 3 small microwave dishes but lots of vertical antennas. It is part of the Village Hall/Police Station/Public Works complex of buildings. So I assume most of the antennas have something to do with police car communications.

And I'm learning that, compared to film, digital pictures are free. So I'm now taking pictures of street signs to remind me where I took a picture. This is the sign that was across the street from where I took the above picture.

Update: on a later trip when I was walking along the north side of the CB&Q tracks, I got a view from the north.
