Any modifications to the unit will result in $140 charge and cancellation of Sprint account as it's property of Sprint at all times. 

 

Thanks, I hadn't seen that thread on the 540 (Airspan black version).  Very nice.  The 545 (Sprint white version) seems to be the same, but with a higher transmit power (the links in my two posts are for the 545).

 

It appears that there are 6 antennas, so I'm out of luck attaching my own antenna anyway.

 

 

Once I receive it, I'll give it a try as-is.  If that doesn't work, I may still need to put it on the roof to get line-of-sight to the Sprint cell tower.  So I would need to find a plastic environmental box that is large enough.  And it needs to survive my 118 degree summers.

 

Thanks for the pointer.

I noticed on the Sprint extended data coverage map most of Northern Nevada is covered now with LTE and 3g. Could this be Choice wireless? This is a big news for me as I travel along I80 in NV sometimes.

Commnet. They're a Sprint extended LTE partner so it's roam like home coverage.

Would the extended network work with Freedompop or Boost? The Freedompop map is conflicting.

If it works anything like C-spire in Mississippi then yeah Boost can use it. I use Boost and, had no issue getting a signal in Mississippi.

Was up in Sacramento for vacation (few hours from Napa) and coverage there was more than usable. Everywhere I went I had 10x10 of B25 and B41 popping up in some places.

O_O?

 

We're entirely 20 MHz PCS A in norcal minus stockton - modesto so I'm not sure how'd you get 10x10 on B25 (we have 2 5 MHz B25 carriers). 

 

Where were you at o_O?

Unless he meant CA between the two carriers? Some people get the two confused.

Could be a glitch in SignalCheck Pro. Checking my logs now and realized I never enabled them during my trip to NorCal. SoCal has it:

So no GCIs that start with 0AC in your logs.  :dep:

 

0BC0B911 should show B26 if they show B25 10x10 and you are on the latest build tell mikejeep. Mike should be able to separate them. Sector 11 in Nokia markets are 10x10 and in Samsung it is B26. 

 

Edit:

Samsung starting GCI ends before 0BA so 11 could be B25 10x10.

Yep that's why I said it was late logging. Have to say that driving down 50 is a scary effort at night. Was driving back from Lake Tahoe.

I was more looking at it from the GCI prospective in how did SCP come to say 10x10.  Samsung GCI range ends right before that GCI shown. And that tripped me up a little bit.

 

Plus I was hopping for someone else's UCV logs to match more site data to the southern part of the market.

Those quick turns and dark roads are scary. I once was directed into the side roads (thanks Google maps) and it scares the bejeeses out of me with cliff edges of hundreds of feet.

Pretty much have no one left here for tracking purposes in the lower portion, northern portion, and reno area. Sadness =/

I remember when I first moved to Nevada in 1994 from Florida. Mountain driving was kind of freaky at first. Always felt like you were out of control on downgrades and curves felt exaggerated. But you get used to it after awhile. Now we mountain folk get irritated when the valley people slow us down.

Yep, Nissan Altima I had as a rental handled them just fine.
