I found this today in Lenexa, KS.   Is it the 3rd Carrier for Band 41?

 

UARFCN 41374

Yep, third carrier. I found the third carrier online here in Springfield, MO this weekend, and it went live in St. Louis sometime last week as well.

 

Channels here are: 39874 / 40072 / 40270

Sprint's B41 holdings in Baton Rouge include BRS1, BRS2, E1-E4, F1-F4, and H1-H3. That gives them a 6 MHz orphan block (2496-2502), a 12 MHz contiguous chunk (2602-2614), and a 55.5 MHz contiguous chunk (2618-2673.5).

 

FCC records show a new, "Special Temporary" license, WQYL886, has been granted for the K block (filed as the "old" F2 block under the pre-transition band plan). This bridges the gap between the 12 MHz and 55.5 MHz chunks for a total of 71.5 MHz contiguous.

 

The first B41 carrier in Baton Rouge moved to new center of 40913 (2622.3 MHz). Based on the previous center spacing of 19.8 MHz, I expect the second and third carriers to now sit at 41111 (2642.1 MHz) and 41309 (2661.9 MHz) respectively, leaving 10 MHz free at the lower end and enough for a guard at the high end.

Band 26?

 

Edit: I think you're posting the text in the middle. Didn't realize what all that said initially.

When are smaller carrier like Appalchian uses B12 does that means less if any B12 for at&t or Tmobile?

B12 is split into 3 6MHz FDD blocks, the A block (728-734/698-704), the B block (734-740/704-710) and the C block (740-746/710-716). If Appalachian is running a 10x10 B12 LTE carrier, that means they must own at least two blocks. The EARFCN, 5120, equates to center frequencies of 740/710 MHz, suggesting that they own the B and C blocks. This means only the A block is left over for either AT&T or T-Mobile, so in short, yes, Appalachian using B12 means less B12 for everyone else.

I think this is the first second band 25 carrier in the ABQ market. Need an android to confirm.

That's a second carrier. UARFCN (should be EARFCN) is one of the only remaining values in Field Test that is consistently accurate.

Spent some quality time watching the Red Sox this weekend, took some sneak peeks at the latest SignalCheck beta and discovered 4 new sectors and EARFCNs I didn't have noted (see below). I'm guessing B41 Mini-Macros are deployed at Fenway with more sectors than usual? Or is it something else?

High capacity site with more than mini macros per 3 sectors. Ie 6 mini macros feeding 3 antennas.

Four carriers support lilotimz. Need to see strongest lat long. Of course photos of tower would be best. Return trip required. ☺

Look at this further today, the GCI sector is not tied to carrier.  Instead they are very much like Triband Antennas where 09, 0A, 0B floats currently between second and third carrier.

    • In the event the merger doesn’t go through, do you think Sprint will sell some of its band 41 spectrum to T-Mobile? since Sprint needs the $ and T-Mobile needs the high-band spectrum
    • I read the portion of the filing that is being referenced in the article and it makes it seem as though both Sprint and T-Mobile are in a dire position. It's funny that despite all that has been stated, both carriers have 5G plans going out at least 6 years from now prepared already, should they be forced to operate separately.  The main issue presented is that Sprint can't deploy 2.5GHz 5G in rural areas because they don't have the money to do so. The only way to get more money is to have more customers. Because of Sprint's poor network perception, the only way for Sprint to get new customers is to lower prices. And because of low prices, Sprint can't make as much money off of their customers so they're stuck in a loop.  T-Mobile on the other hand has the money to build a broad 5G network over 600MHz, but they don't have the spectrum to provide 5G speeds like Sprint can. So they'll be able to claim the title of the largest 5G network by square mileage but with speeds that aren't much better than current LTE speeds. Sprint will a larger network capable of providing faster speeds. Basically, T-Mobile won't be able to compete effectively in the 5G space in terms of offering "true 5G experience" to their customers until they can get everyone off of LTE which isn't happening soon. The solution is that in merging, the New T-Mobile will be able to deploy 2.5GHz over a large area so that more people can have access to those higher speeds that they wouldn't get by 600MHz only or because of Sprint's smaller network.
    • Yup and we could have Sling for free lol
    • Yeah, Dish could have invested all that money that they invested in spectrum on Sprint's network instead. They could have brought the AWS-4 25x20 band of spectrum to sprint to strengthen Sprint's midband position, they would not have needed to bid on the AWS-3 auction and they could have probably acquired a 10x10 band of 600MHz.
