I believe it's already there. There should be strongest coordinates and last seen coordinates.

I know the coordinates are there. It would be convenient if Mike could add the geolocated address.

I believe there is a limit of 1000 address lookups a day per google account. At least that is the most I can look up with a spreadsheet script. My point is that would be alot of lookups as you move closer to towers.

 

I can give you the script to do it in google spreadsheets after the fact. I only used it to easily give address to sites fast and dirty when creating market spreadsheets.

 

I normaly just throw the SCP db into fusion to get a map view. Well that is after I delete the unseen site from the market db.

Stock LG G4 with Android 6.0 works as it should, that is a typical SCP older phone (no earfcn).

 

Confirmed B25 10x10 earfcns are 8140, 8290, 8390, 8640.  Likely are 8090, 8140, 8240, 8290, 8390, 8440, 8490, 8540, 8590, 8640 assuming typical alignment [thanks to lilotimz for helping to finalize this list].   Messy situations would have to be identified per market.

I personally want the EARFCN displayed by SCP, even when I know what the site should be.  It is another means to judge the accuracy of both the SCP data and the site data.  Now if we could just get the RSRP value back for known sites while using user_notes B)

 

What do you mean by "get the RSRP value back for known sites"? You lost me..

 

 

Ie 34/3C, 35/3D, and 36/3E should correspond to the second MM on an antenna in a HC mm site.

 

Got it, thanks! I'll just label them MM's for now unless there's something special about this.

I see how that could be useful when looking through your logs, but I think there are more cons than pros for this one. Like Flompholph said, Google limits how many geo-queries you can do; that's one reason why SCP won't query a BSL if the app isn't in the foreground -- no need to burn up limited resources. And it triggers more data transfer than one might expect. You can use Fusion tables or scripts on the raw data for now, I agree that is a better option. Adding an address field would cause a huge increase to the database size, since every sector would get a text address. Many people have many tens of thousands of database entries.

4th carrier is what is special since 80 MHz would be live while 8t8r is 60 MHz unless you do HC setup.

That is probably a swipe at me. The national DB uses the data from market spreadsheets to give a clearer image on how far you are in the neighbor cells. It uses -1 on known PCIs so it does not get wrote over. Unless you want to add tower location columns that are only used in the app to read and only used for neighbor cells distance. The big collection of SCP log is only 8.26MB with over 67,000 sectors.

Ah.. but as far as SCP goes, is that something that warrants some sort of special indicator beyond "MM"?  Are these sectors confirmed by anyone else out there? I haven't seen any other reports of them besides what I observed at Fenway.

No swipe intended.   Weaker RSRPs on changed PCIs have much higher odds of being in error.  This is actually a function of how many times this particular sector and band are seen (know from Signal Detector) but I assume that counting that would be even more difficult.

There are rumors of another in New Orleans.  It would expect high capacity MM sites to increase as time goes on.  Based on what I have seen, they should have enough ports on the routers for the additional MMs to plug into. We have over 110 sites of MMs in Columbus, some with small cells nearby.

I think we have to look at the MM carriers as being virtual, like the triband antennas. which currently use the second carrier at some sites and the third carrier at others.  It is useful for people to know how many possible carriers are at a site based soley on what carrier they are on.   So I would have MM, MM2,MM3,MM4 for these high capacity sites.  So many people assume that no new bands equals no new capacity.  This is an educational effort.

I haven't paid attention before the beta update but is the ASU measurement broken now on Samsung devices?  The reason I am asking is that my S8 is only showing (99 asu).

First I'm hearing of it.. anyone else? I haven't touched anything in that part of the app recently..

I agree that it's good to know and seems to be fluid, I just need to figure out how to best display it. Going to continue my discussion further in that Premier thread lilotimz mentioned..

Hey All...It's been awhile but I'm back! Still love Signal Check, still use it on Verizon. I'm obtaining a Moto G5 Plus to port a number I have on Verzion over to the Sprint promotion. Want to see what's changed since I've been here. Miss the crew, and look forward to being back. Thanks for the updates to the app!

Any way to just turn off the "LTE connection found" message on the pull down screens?  Thanks

Sprint market 07C, which is Samsung, also has ALU sites.  They appear to all start at 500hex and end before 2501dec based on analysis of others and what I am seeing in logs.

Other than earfcn is not always accurate, no problems encountered on another trip with three phones running beta.

So I've been removed from the group for awhile and I cannot remember. Was there anyone collecting logs to amass a database of site information? Or has that effort gone to the wayside? I remember some talk about it, but can't recall. Thanks!

Individual market data combined into "national" database exists.

Yes, there is a thread discussing it in the Premier Sponsor section.

Oops, forgot I was testing that. On Android 7+, it may become a necessity if you have an Alert enabled. If no text is displayed, an exception is occurring and the Alert does not fire. Still exploring this.

Are you saying the earfcn is not always accurate on these ALU sites in Samsung territory? Or in general? Are you seeing inaccuracies via the root method or the native Nougat routine?

That reminds me there was a bug that locks up SCP if you import a db with an extra column. It has been a while I will try and reproduce it and send the db.

 

KD8JBF you should also check out the honored level kml for florida. I may PM you or pm me if you are going to try and track florida.

    • I don't even know where to start. Price is immaterial at this point. You can own 99 percent of all the shares in a company and if those shares are nonvoting you have no say in how the company runs. As I have been saying forever the issue was never about price it was about the shares being voting or nonvoting. The Reuters article confirms that was and remains the issue. What has changed is that there are several clocks are now ticking and time is not on Tmobile's side. This is why talks are occurring again. Either Son believes he now has a better advantage or Tmobile realizes that they don't have the spectrum or the physical network to really make a run of 5G.

      Remember only Sprint is talking about a mobile 5G network. The other 3 are talking about hotspots and Fixed wireless 5G. The public in general doesn't understand this. This also realigns the market. For 5G At&t and Verizon will be competing in the marketplace with wireline operators. Notice that as those two have been selling off wireline assets, they have been selling them to companies like Frontier, who couldn't ever compete with fixed wireless 5G. Tmobile would also be entering this same market and they are missing one huge advantage all three of the others have. Tier one internet backbones. They also don't have the spectrum to build a 5G mobile network.

      Stop and think about the position that leaves Tmobile in. Reliant on one side on the same companies they are competing against. And unable to provide actual 5G speeds in the mobile market.

      They would have to be stoned or stupid not to give Son the one thing he asked for. Voting rights.

      So is price the issue? No. It is an all stock deal and it doesn't matter what exchange price is set if the stock awarded is nonvoting. He would have to have faith in the germans to run the company properly or say goodbye to all of the money spent into Sprint.

    • Didn't Sprint use a small part of their spectrum licenses for a leaseback deal? I believe the last reports had 14% of their spectrum being leased back to them, but that number could have grown since then due to Sprint's desire to raise money. I'm don't know if this impacted Softbank's negotiating leverage, but I'm sure it was brought up.
    • Son not gonna give up that treasure trove of 2.5 spectrum for cheap, $12 per share minimum.  Gonna love my May 2018 calls!  Cha-ching! 
    • PRLs do not affect LTE connectivity — they are only for CDMA. What you are observing must be a coincidence. As Sprint and Open Mobile are still integrating their networks, Band 13 will probably come and go quite a few more times before you’ll be able to properly connect to it.  It’s hard to say. Although I may be wrong, I think that if the merger does goes through (which it may or may not), it will go through everywhere. 
    • Update: Did a PRL update (55069) and sightings of B13 using Signal Check Pro are less frequent know in my area. Before this latest PRL, I was able to see between 2-3 B13 signals everyday for the entire time that I had the app open but not anymore. There is a B13 in my area at -98 dBm that's constantly disappearing from Signal Check Pro. As for roaming charges when I was using Open Mobile, there are none and the roaming data allotment stills at zero. Two question for thought... If Sprint and T-Mobile merge, what could be the implications for PRWireless in Puerto Rico (Joint company between Sprint and Open Mobile)? Would the DOJ step in to prevent a 3 carrier merge in PR? Or would it go thru making a super telecom company in PR? Or maybe the DOJ allows the merge in the USA but not in PR... Lastly, could the rollout of Sprint VoLTE be affected in PR do to Open Mobile's equipment?
