Can someone me identify these tower antennas?

Recommended Posts

I believe the one on the bottom belonged to clearwire but then sprint made it work with their network. (Please do correct me if I'm wrong on that) and the top ones also belong to sprint.

Sorry for the terrible picture quality, it came off of google earth. http://tinypic.com/r/29ct0jt/9

I don't think you'll be able to see any cabinets or shacks though

Yes that is a Sprint and Clearwire colocated site. 

 

Sprints on top and old Clearwire on bottom.

 

The clearwire 2.5ghz equipment will be removed in the near future as it's redundant since Nokia has already installed their 8T8R 2.5 GHz equipment on the Sprint rack.

So does sprint use Clearwire's equipment at all? And does sprint only use cabinets or do they also use shacks sometimes as well?

Those not considered redundant yes. 

 

Vast majority are cabinets. Enclosed shacks contain the cabinets but they're generally used by ATT and VZW.

Also see commercial radio dipoles on that tower to. It is more then just a cell site.

Saw these on a tower they are actively working on. It's off apperson in Salem VA behind a Wendy's. I know for a fact US cellular is on that tower but who else?

I'm pretty confident the middle rack with the two antennas far apart is T-Mobile.

Don't know for sure, but I suspect AT&T, if only because it doesn't look like Sprint equipment (which ShenTelos would be using) and Verizon usually has more panels per sector.

    • I think you guys should get in contact with folks at essential since they are very receptive to user feedback. They have hosted multiple AMAs on Reddit.
    • The Pixel 2 XL also does SRLTE all the time. The big downside seems to be that SMS always uses CDMA again instead of using IMS. So long messages will be split, incoming ones are out of order (and delayed a minute or 2 sometimes), and sending takes a while. Otherwise, I suspect incoming calls will be more reliable.

    • Technically Sprint has surpassed Tmobile in network quality just not actual coverage. But I’m hearing it’s also some LTE expansion in this. As both the CEO and COO have stated “cell sites in new areas” in some interviews. Don’t get me wrong extended LTE is cool. But it’s still roaming at the end of the day. I would rather them fill those extended LTE areas with native LTE.

    • I contacted the Sprint contact on Reddit who has been very helpful with solving these weird issues. Sometimes it takes a while to hear back but I have high hopes. 
    • I tried to report it again to Sprint i got the same answer no reports and the one i thought made the report ticket they no have record of it.
