Maybe in a few days. I've got a few ideas but I'm fairly busy for the next couple of days and still require additional photos.

I took a class in Python in college, and two of my roommates were CS majors...I've heard my fair share of programming jokes!

There's nothing wrong with hitting up Lipsum.com for filler text. With this crowd, you may wanna try baconipsum.com :)

Let me know what you need. It's a site literally down the street from my house -- I'd be happy to take more photos, get video (for closer zooms/stills), etc.

You're so lucky lol. I'm jealous you have TD-lTE being setup in your area.

Stuff I would like:

1) Photos of base station cabinets

2) Multi-angle close ups of RRUs & the rf splitter device (?) that is connected to two of the 4 RF ports.

3) Different views of each antenna & RRU

4) overview of all three RRU & Antennas

5) Overview of antenna & nearby racks

6) Sprint NV rack

7) Anything else you deem worthy of taking images of

It's less than a half mile from my house, too. Can't wait.

The base station cabinets may be a bit problematic - this is a tower that also contains AT&T and VZW, and there is an enclosed structure that houses a lot of stuff. I'll do my best to grab as much as I can, but I can't make any guarantees. That said, hopefully the Clearwire base station cabinets are easy to spot and are out in the open. I did see some shiny metal cabinetry, which matches the other Clearwire flagpole site's base station cabinet, so we may be in luck.

 

I'll try to grab the other images once it clears up and we have better lighting.

I updated the Flickr photoset with a lot more photos, including the base stations. We were lucky - they were out in the open.  :D

Circle stuff timothy wilco! lol awesome stuff though!!

So was this tower a clearwire tower at first? or Sprint 4G or was it just a non-updated tower?

      The 850 MHz LTE Sprint network is so congested in De Soto MO. I also have proof on my SDR Radio.
       My SDR Radio can only show 1.920 MHz of the 5 MHz wide LTE Signal.

      hey guys i am due for a upgrade today....i am curious on the opinions of others of what phone is a great phone... any opinions are welcome !

      I notice a lot of post regarding the markets in IL,FL,TX,PA,NYC.... but how about about the Los Angeles market? I THINK it was samsung doing the set up for the L.A market? Not sure though.... I'm not a sponsor member of the site so I can't really check... if I had a job I'd most definitely donate!
       
      Couple of months ago the local towers were all down and being upgraded to NV I assume since Larry from Howard forums said there was NV work being done my zip code. The speeds were better for a bit but now they are awful again.
       
      Can anyone (most preferred Robert) make a comment on if there is any LTE activity near 90255 area code?
       
      Thanks, great site by the way... I'm a Lurker.

      Did you know that with many Sprint (Uniband) LTE Android devices, the signal strength indicator at the top does not show your LTE signal strength? Even if 4G or LTE is displayed next to it?
       
      That's right!  This signal displayed here is your 1x (voice signal), and it is not your 3G EVDO signal strength, nor your LTE signal strength.  Regardless of whether it says 3G or 4G next to it. This is the cause of a lot of confusion.  Also, third party apps like NetMonitor do not show accurate LTE signal strengths. They also only show the 1x signal strength, even though they may reference being connected to LTE.
      The purpose of this thread is to help educate the masses, because many people think they have a strong LTE signal, when in fact they do not. And then they are unhappy, thinking that Sprint LTE is really slow, even with a strong signal. LTE performance is very signal strength dependent. So, when you have a weak signal, you can expect much slower than peak results.
       
      There is only one accurate way to get your LTE signal strength, and that is from your LTE Engineering screen in your Debug menu. And we will discuss the different ways to get that below.
       
      ...In HTC, Motorola & LG Sprint LTE devices:
      Go in to your phone app, and dial ##DEBUG# Select LTE Engineering Go down to RSRP. The number under RSRP shown in dBm is your LTE signal strength. ...In Samsung Sprint LTE devices:
      Go in to your phone app, and dial ##DEBUG# Enter 777468 for your lock code Select LTE Engineering Go down to RSRP. The number next to RSRP shown in dBm is your LTE signal strength. ...In the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 5:
      Go in to your phone app, and dial *#*#DEBUG#*#* Enter 777468 for your lock code Select LTE Engineering Go down to RSRP. The number next to RSRP shown in dBm is your LTE signal strength. The LTE Signal Strength Scale:
       
      Now you have determined your actual LTE signal strength in dBms your device is receiving, you can use the following scale below to determine its strength:
      Better than -88dBm RSRP is a strong signal Between -89dBm and -96dBm is a very good signal Between -97dBm and -105dBm is good Between -106dBm and -112dBm is fair Worse than -113dBm RSRP is poor Feel free to link people to this thread for explanation. Hopefully, this will clear up some confusion out there!
