San Diego Pier

Earlier this year I was in San Diego and took a walk down by the pier. There’s a spot where you can sit on the pier near the Midway Museum and someone (the city?) has installed a Merki access point and a camera.

What interests me most about this is the empty bracket that’s still mounted above the camera. Looks like maybe a Cisco 1552E used to be mounted on this pole?

Why leave the bracket there? And why leave the power whip for that old AP dangling there? It doesn’t even look like the end is capped. Isn’t that a hazard?

Regretably, I didn’t open my phone and scan for SSIDs! 😑
