That is a TV Electronic News Gathering (ENG) antenna. Most likely a NSI or
Nurad Super Quad model. They have been around for a long time and there are
lots of them around. Inside the radome is a fiberglass cosecant squared
antenna that is about 4 feet tall with a CP antenna feed mounted out the
front. It for sure is for receiving 1990 to 2110 MHz and may also be
equipped for 2.5 GHz, 6.7 to 7.3 GHz or even 12.7 to 13.2 GHz. There were
receiving converters available for the higher bands over the years. Now
they are using Analog FM but in the next 2 years Nextel will be paying to
convert everything to COFDM Digital. The analog systems are pretty site
friendly, the digital is something different but being this is a receive
site you should be OK. The analog transmitters generally run 10 to 15 watts
into a 24 Db gain antenna which is a decent ERP, the Digital transmitters
are more like 2 to 7 watts into the same gain.
Like Bob Dylan said "times they are a changing".
