AT&T MW Horns

These were the last of giant MW lenses or horns or whatever they are removed from the AT&T building in downtown Little Rock. These were definately microwave use but they are horn shaped. What flare did they use?
I'd like to use them as acoustic art piece but will likely end up as scrap. Sad...
Abit of local history.
AT&T history that has been watching over Little Rock for 50+ years has come down. In 1951 AT&T started an ambitious project to connect the country with 107 radio-microwave towers at a cost 40 million dollars, 375 million in today’s terms. The project was completed and connected the country with telephone and television transmission. With the advances of fiber optic technology, we abandoned microwave transmission. From what I can surmise this was the last array of microwave towers in Little Rock. These were located on the top of the AT&T Tower in Downtown Little Rock at the corner of 8th and Louisiana.
