Re: Tower Location for antenna direction

Here is a link to the OnWireless guide on using the ACMA/Radcom website to locate and assess Tower locations in Australia. I found it helpful when setting up our Go-Repeater with external antenna.

Education by osmosis is my preferred option

Re: Tower Location for antenna direction

You could try an app like Network Cell Info Lite..  use it outside to locate the tower of interest or look for other towers in the area..  the map give a visual representation of direction (bearing) from your current location.
