MiniCOW by FWT, Inc.

I found this MiniCOW while driving through Petersburg. I never knew these existed. You can see how it’s beaming something to a cell tower via microwave in the first picture.

FWT’s COWs (cell on wheels) reduce site development costs by testing a site location before any construction begins. The following charts will aid you in selecting the correct product for your specific application. Contact FWT for available custom options. OR
