This site is about 6km east of Tripoli in North West Lebanon.  It has good views of Tripoli and up the coast into Syria. There are 9 towers here.  The photograph shows four of them (from left to right):

An Alcatel tower carrying MTV

The Future TV tower with Radio Orient 89.6MHz.  The Radio Orient antenna comprises vertically polarised panels. There is a different number on each face (maximum 8) giving a directional pattern.  Radio Liban also has a single dipole antenna on this tower (106.7MHz).
