DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — “One might be hidden in a cross on a church lawn. Others are disguised as a cactus in the desert, a silo in farm country or a palm tree reaching into a sunny sky.

“Whatever the deception, the goal is the same: concealing the tall, slender cellphone towers that most Americans need but few want to see erected in their neighborhoods…”
 
I think the cross is the most apt camouflaging technique, since so many people obsess over their cell phones to a near-idolatrous degree.
