Hidden Valley Wireless

After a request from the wife of Sen. John McCain, Verizon Wireless proposed installing a cell tower close to John and Cindy McCain's home in Hidden Valley, near Sedona, Ariz. The tower's coverage would have been focused on the ranch and a few neighbors. Instead, a cell site on wheels was installed and Verizon later dropped plans for a permanent tower because it didn't make business sense.
