Strange, Signal check is still saying LTE 1900 d2d9cd78d5bc6d7f4632b09374b10974.jpgda3deeaaa72eafc4ec6afb83d4600841.jpg

Interesting. Not the usual Nokia gci ending either.

I suspect Airspan Air Harmony 1000 or 4000 either as a small cell or in groups of two or three at the site with simple b41 antennas.  (edit: spotted photos of a site).  If an Air Harmony was fiber fed, that could be the second carrier.

 

If it is a split sector and that is a virtual GCI, what others do you get when you walk around the site?

I looked up the US frequencies for that area.  Always possible there are conflicts with Mexico.  Here are the uncontested frequencies.  Note that one lease may go away in a year.

 

Sprint Call ID      start   finish   bandwidth   expires   earfcn

WQL202, B486        2496    2502        6                  39680

WND375-L000001878   2518.5  2535       16.5      6/25/18   39957~

WND375-L000001878   2578    2584        6        6/25/18   40500

WQL202, B486        2618    2624        6                  40900

 

Sprint would be clear in the immediate area into Imperial County CA.

 

Here is the unabridged version: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12La02ReEXzlVbz760c0H0XWOQB4Xt2HrM202-_WzO5c/edit?usp=sharing

 

It is quite possible that they have another 5mhz, which could then use uncontiguous CA soontm when it becomes available with the latest phones at that time.  If this B41 is from a small cell that other carrier could be the GCI sector 01, else 01 could be another sector from the site as well as 00 or 03.

Sounds like I need to do some research out there. I'll take a trip down there and get more info

And this is the result of the upgrades here in Yuma. So far, only two towers have been updated. 0c9fd77fc69da856ebc7ede44ea535fa.jpg1fa6e96fbf2bc4591b5e8ecbbb60a954.jpg

That area must have 5x5 plus 10x10 then?

I thought Yuma only had 5x5 on all bands.  Not really sure.

You posted that 10x10 was active? So I'm confused by this statement.

That's what I thought it had all along, but all of Yuma has a 10x10 so I was confused too.

That's a proper 10 MHz B25 2nd carrier for ALU land. Your region has 10+5 on B25 then.

Just got an On Air notification for a 1x800 voice upgrade on a site in downtown Tucson. I don't remember seeing any other 1x800 yet that close to the border.

Is it possible to post the cross streets of the site?  I have a friend that lives there with poor service and he would appreciates some good news. PM me if we need to keep the info private.

Well, if it is not a device reporting error, then it probably means that enough is clear in Mexico to at least run one CDMA 1.25MHz wide channel.

I'll have to look when I get back to work on Wednesday. But from memory it was basically the I-10 and Broadway area.

Info came from GLANCE, not my device. So it could be a reporting error, but less likely at least here.

I'm so dense!  I read On Air Notification and assumed it was an Android notification.  So then I was thinking SCP notification.  Made a big leap there.  Especially since I have seen a lot of 'On Air Announcements" in my day.  What a maroon!  :wavey:

There is a site with CDMA 800 showing live in Sprint's system.  We don't know until someone can verify it.

To be able to see it, you may have to turn off your LTE if the site happens to be ONLY broadcasting CDMA 1X on 800. Hope you also find LTE on 800, but that was not mentioned as being in service. Bring on some screen shots.

    • Because you simply have to plug it in to a power outlet near a window. 
    • Except for a soft hand off to thw macro network. It can't do that, but other than that, there exactly the same. 
    • Because public WiFi has an ongoing maintance cost, plus the cost to set it up and properly isolate it from your network. The magic box is just easier. You aren't responsible for it. The magic box (via LTE) also has vastly superior QoS so that one person won't bog it down.

      My parents house is one place where a magic box works amazingly. Their only internet option is 3 mbps DSL. B26 only on phones, and that's upstairs only. The magic box latches on to b25 and provides 15-30 Mbps consistently. They actually use it now with a Sprint mobile broadband plan. For some people, the magic box is a better solution than an Airave or wifi calling (which won't work well on 3 mbps DSL if someone is using the internet). For businesses, it's a $0 cost, easy deployment to help customers. And they aren't responsible for what people do on it.

    • Because if you're not offering public WiFi, why would you go out of your way to set up a Magic Box??
    • I really don't see why it is that you think that if you don't have public wifi then you wouldn't use an MB. The MagicBox is a repeater for Sprint's network requiring essential zero exposure or expenditure for the retail provider beyond electricity. It is also zero maintenance or setup. It's a highly superior solution in my view.
