For Ericsson markets t-mobile uses what is known as AIR antenna units which have the radio unit integrated with the antenna. This type of setup significantly reduces signal loss from the radio to the antenna since they're both practically next to each other and not sepearated by coax jumper cables like that of a remote radio unit.
Basic Ericsson AIR21 setup
(Note typically there are 2 Ericsson AIR per sector)
Ericsson AIR21 + Band 12 700 mhz Equipment
Note the addition of a new low band 700 mhz capable antenna + Ericsson RRUS11 B12 (remote radio units) in addition to new TMA (tower mounted amplifiers) connected to the AIR antenna. The new Ericsson RRUS11 B12 + Antenna addition is for tmobiles band 12 700mhz (L700) deployment.

This is the Samsung Outdoor Pico eNB small cell for LTE 1900 that will be deployed by Sprint. Outdoor small cells are utilized to providie additional capacity and coverage mainly in areas where there is a high population density such as major malls, major streets with lot of busineses, train stations, airports, and the like.
Small cells are mostly PnP where you just plug everything in and fire it up and it will auto configure itself by downloading parameters and additional information from the network. Utilizing the latest advances in small cell technology, these pico cells would also over time optimize itself based on feedback from UE and neighboring small cells and macro cells.
Exactly the sort of quirk I was concerned about! That is why I will just keep making updates as I learn of new discoveries. I have no doubt that anyone savvy enough to get a Magic Box and run SignalCheck will immediately notice if the app is not correct, and word always seems to get back to me.
Thank you @UPdownLoAD and @bucdenny! I will add 0F0. Looks like it will be tricky staying on top of the MB GCI's.. they are burning through prefixes fairly quickly early on, at this rate they will be at 0FF in no time. It would be easier for me to assume everything between 0EC and 0FF will be a MB but I'm not ready to do that yet.
Also, thank you to those of you who have been providing me with diagnostic reports and feedback about the Wi-Fi channel issue. I'm still working on finishing up overhauling that, but it looks like the "new" method does reliably identify DFS channels on newer devices.
