Maybe Mike should find a way to not update the old version but come out with a new improved version and charge a fee on the Google Play store.   He needs to be paid and I sure do not have an objection to paying for his time and efforts.

Don't be surprised if he has postponed any work on this app indefinitely. He did say he has been extremely busy.

He's still working on it, just busy at his job and less time to play on dude projects....

I'd gladly buy a new version of the app.  So much has changed, the amount of work deserves some additional compensation.

Anyone seen or heard from Mike recently?  Just wondering if he has any updates on progress since his post in February

Windows 10 was a free upgrade. He could add a donate option to the existing app. LTE Discovery has a continuing support option, he could do something similar.

It's a lot of work. He could just start a new app and charge. Upgrades should be free up until a certain point.

Windows 8 was not much of a hit with consumers.  MS did that to just save face and get W10 adoption rate increased.

So here is a question.... 

 

I took/entered pretty good notes for towers I found/use..   Ran across one today that had no notes???  And I KNOW it had notes.  in fact it was weird, I got off a phone call, it should the notes, then popped back to a tower with no notes??

 

Very confused... updated tower maybe??  different ID numbers??

Does anybody know how signal check reacts when using a dual SIM phone? I'm thinking about purchasing a dual SIM phone and running Att and TMobile or Att and VZW.

It displays the info of the SIM that is selected for data in my OnePlus 2. The way most dual SIMs work is that it can receive incoming calls from either SIM, and select which SIM for outgoing. But data is through only one SIM at a time. And the SIM selected is displayed in SCP. And there are different preferences that can be set to default a SIM for this and that.

 

However, it could react different for other Dual SIM phones.

thank you! Hoping the OnePlus 5 turns out to be a solid phone. Planning on getting that or the next axon device so I can run a dual SIM setup.

As an FYI, using Magisk root with EARFCN logging causes a lockup and kernel panic on the Pixel XL the second time SCP is launched after a boot. Unsure why it only happens after the second time...

 

Really we just need an app update that uses the native earfcn method.

Hey Mike ever though open sourcing your project? I know you're busy.

Open sourcing the project would be great. I'd love to contribute to SCP

AGREED!!

 

Howdy all. Checking in again. Yep, same excuse, crazy busy, blah blah blah.. but I have been working on it, slowly. Due to my lack of progress, I've decided to take a new approach to the Android permissions nightmare that is really holding everything up. Everyone is antsy for new features and the new API stuff -- and that includes me.

 

The big holdup is how the app reacts when someone revokes a permission while it is running; right now it's pretty catastrophic. As in, worst case scenario is the device is frozen until the battery dies (!). Denying a permission doesn't go so well either. Android guidelines (and my conscience) require that the app handle these scenarios properly. However, because SignalCheck is really just displaying a lot of data it's getting from the phone itself, this is more complicated than one would expect.

 

I'm changing directions and going to leave crude protections in place for those who don't grant permissions, and instead going to focus on adding other new goodies. I can't release it publicly like that, but at least it will hopefully give me a chance to implement some of this new stuff and let others play with it.

 

I also want to change who has access to beta versions since it's been so long since anyone has gotten an update, but I need to figure out the logistics of that.

 

Seriously, thanks for your patience. I realize it's been a year, and a lot has changed since then. New band identifiers and new API features will be the first priorities.

 

-Mike

      Ericsson RRUS31 B25 + RRUS11 B26
      These are the newest and greatest remote radio units to come from Ericsson. 

      The new Ericsson RRUS31  B25 should be fairly distinctive compared to the earlier RRUS11s and now the RRUS12s being deployed by ATT and Verizon. One of these new RRUS31s can do the job of two earlier RRUS11s thus reducing deployment costs for Sprint and complexity in deploying new sites and making it easier for users to spot as there are now 4 jumpers coming out of one RRUS31 rather than two from each RRUS11 that Ericsson originally deployed. 

      All future deployments will be utilizing the new Ericsson RRUS31s. In addition Ericsson are sending crews to their original deployments and swapping out older RRUS11s for these new RRUS31s due to the aforementioned fact that one RRUS31 can do the job of 2 RRUS11s. Weight savings will be significant at sites where there are 4 or 5 RRUS11 B25s that can be replaced by one or 2 RRUS31s. The Ericsson RRUS31 deployment project is known as the 65 Mhz Project.

      Ericsson High Capacity / 4x4/2 MIMO Deployment
      Note the additional antenna + PCS radio.
      Previously Ericsson utilized additional PCS radios and used RF combiners for high capacity setups where they utilized three or more PCS radios. This new setup will utilize a completey new antenna + radio set just like Samsung and run 4x2 MIMO on the LTE antenna / radio set.

      A standard Ericsson Network Vision 1.0 site with 3 RRUS11s where two are dedicated to PCS and one to SMR.  

      This type of setup is no longer deployed or utilized in new sites. Existing sites will be slowly converted to newer RRUS31 B25 via the Sprint 65 mhz project. 


       
      Ericsson NV high capacity site [EOL'd]
      3 or 4 PCS RRUs are present for a total of 4 or 5 RRUS11s per antenna.

      Here are the Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) Network Vision equipment for Sprint. Their equipment consists of 2x base stations, 6 or 9 Remote Radio Unit (RRU) setups, and 1 standard NV antenna of with connectors on the bottom (4x PCS, 2x SMR). 

      Below are images of Alcatel-Lucent equipment. In these images, you will find Alcatel-Lucent base stations, Sprint Network Vision antennas, PCS 1900 & SMR 800 RRUs, and their configurations.
