  • Patent number: 9837698
    Abstract: A communications system. The communications system includes a pole with an inner channel extending substantially an entire vertical height thereof, the pole being anchorable in a support surface. An antenna luminary assembly is received in the inner channel of the pole at an end thereof, the antenna luminary assembly including an antenna and a light source. The antenna luminary assembly is transitionable from an unlocked position where the antenna luminary assembly is rotatable about a central axis of the pole and a locked position where the antenna luminary assembly is non-rotatable about the central axis of the pole. A rotational position of the antenna luminary assembly relative to central axis of the pole defines a horizontal azimuth of the antenna.

  • Publication number: 20050092100
    Abstract: A magnetic field coupler has a plurality of magnetic poles with respective first ends located immediately adjacent a circular path of a rotating magnet in a meter. The magnetic poles have respective opposite ends located immediately adjacent a magnetic sensor in a meter reading device. A nonmagnetic material separates each of the plurality of poles from all others of the plurality of the poles, and the nonmagnetic material is joined with the poles to form a unitary structure.
