Need help identifying towers (cell, radio, etc)?

I need some help identifying these five towers (there's a sixth tower behind #3, but that's not important).


I'm pretty sure #1 is a radio tower, but I'm unsure about the rest. Any idea what they are used for?

I have no idea.

However, I found a site that allows you to search for cell towers near a given location. Maybe you can enter the location info for those photos and see if a cell tower should be one of them:

This site has data on locations of TV towers:

Alternatively, Wikipedia has pictures of different tower types:

This site has lots of pics of different types of towers:

I'm not sure but they mostly look like radio towers.

I'm fairly certain the circular, dome-shaped things are microwave relay dishes.
