It looks sort of like a camera to me.....maybe with a motion/pan control box

Subject: Q for the group: Help Identify a Mystery Antenna ?
A buddy sent me a photo of an odd antenna (at least that's what we think
it is), and asked me if I could I.D. it. I have a hunch I've seen
something similar before in an amateur radio context - but I cannot for
the life of me tease the information from grey-matter memory.
I've posted a picture of it onto Photobucket (link below). The picture
quality is not great, as it was taken with a cellphone camera.
The object appears to be a rectangualar box, less than 12 inches on each
side, and perhaps 6 inches deep. A feed line (?) is attached and runs
down the mast and tower. Overall height above ground is about 55-60 feet.
I have no other details, except that the tower is located on private
land on a hilltop. My best guess is a UHF or higher frequency antenna,
or perhaps some type of HDTV active antenna. Perusing the photo archive
on Google has not rung any bells, so I'm stumped.
Anyone know what this is? I figure if anyone will know, it'll be
someone on WetNet.
