Main paths to Rattlesnake and Orting (near Spar Pole).

The dish on the north side of the tower goes to a GTE tower near FEMA Bothell which relays to the GTE Everett toll office. This was a non-ATT LEC circuit connecting GTE and PNB.
There was also a Gold Mt path, perhaps this was where the removed pair of horns was pointed.
Not sure what the missing-cover cornucopia is for.

Seeing a lot of that "re-purposing" of of existing old horns to mount lighter weight dishes inside.

Lots of stuff down here that is placed "behind" the old delay lens panel covers.

Probably saves a lot of work and money not trying to remove that old heavy stuff.

I grew up next to the Bothell relay site. It's now a SERS tower. I'm trying to get pictures of what it looked like when GTE owned it. As I recall there were two horns pointed to Seattle and one pointed to Everett. The Everett site still has a tower on top of their building but the horn have been taken down and looks like a TV antenna is up there.
