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.

    • About $575 now.  We are way behind.  And the last week.  If you've been waiting, it would be a great time to join.  We are still not fully funded!  For those of you who still have not received their entries, I will be sending them out Monday or Tuesday night. Thanks for all your support! Robert
    • It would be pretty consistent with what was reported last week that a merger announcement is still likely imminent, but wasn't going to be ready by earnings as previously hoped by both parties. There is little point in holding a conference call with analysts right now when you know the questions would be merger dominated (and T-Mobile's executive team can't really answer most of said questions in such a setting right now), especially when you expect to have to hold a conference call with analysts at some point in the coming weeks after you announce a merger.
    • Any thoughts on what this means? T-Mobile to Release Q3 2017 Earnings on October 23, 2017 Bellevue, Washington — October 22, 2017 — T-Mobile US, Inc. (NASDAQ: TMUS) will issue an earnings release and Investor Factbook reporting its third quarter 2017 financial and operational results on Monday, October 23, 2017 at approximately 7:30 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). A vlog with President and Chief Executive Officer John Legere and a prepared Q&A discussing the results will be available at the same time. Please note that we will not host an earnings call this quarter. No Earnings Call? That seems really peculiar... and perhaps indicative. Sprint hasn’t yet announced its Earnings Call. For reference, Sprint held its Fiscal Q216 Earnings Call on October 25, 2016. Seems like something’s up here.
