I believe it was active on the MMs, but the apparent 8T8R or whatever was going on there didn't seem to have CA. Was there for 2 hours and never saw CA.

I could be wrong isn't there a spectrum swap in your area?

Yep and whatever info you can grab via engineering and APsps.

Basically the point of this exercise is to identify what B41 equipment is broadcasting that oddball 29 GCI and if it could be the Ericsson 8T8R B41 radios. Appreciate whoever can contribute to this search.

Prime candidates for finding that mystery GCI is these sites.

Chop Chop!

 

 

If it helps, first and third as of 4 days ago only had 1 B25/26 antenna, second link is a GMO flagpole site with no LTE broadcasting, and the 4th is broadcasting b41. I didn't see exactly what type of antenna it had.

 

 

I can confirm, first site only has dual-band equipment.

 

Only saw B25 in the vicinity of the second. 

 

Was never very close to the 3rd so pretty sure that's not it.

 

Did see MM B41 near the 4th. Was an accident on the hwy so wasn't paying close attention.

 

Can confirm MM B41 on Wyoming and Menaul and on the site at Louisiana and Indian Ridge.

 

The odd B41 carrier and 4th carrier were strongest on Menaul near San Mateo so my guesses would be San Mateo and Aztec, or Cutler and Jefferson.

Would this be the first four carriers of band 41?

No. We found what appeared to be a Samsung 8t8r test site many months ago with confirmed 4 carriers.

 

Also HC mini macro sites runs 4 B41 carriers.

 

So this would be potentially the first 4th carrier 8t8r Nokia or Ericsson setup.

I would check out ones in the vicinity of the areas I listed. Interested in seeing what equipment is broadcasting the 48529 GCI. Also to see if you can verify the 4 different B41 carriers as well.

Please don't quote unrelated posts.... that's likely AT&T or Verizon.

Middle ATT and bottom V

thanks for the info.. I'm assuming since it's a 2 sector tower for sprint .. if I were to get on the other side of the tower I wouldn't have service
