They are doing backhaul and installing the cabinets. I talked to one of the guys doing work at the one off west FLORISSANT. I was there this last Saturday and more cabinets and some holes dug.




I went back there again today the holes are all filled in and there are 2 cardboard boxes in the fenced in area. One has part number BYB91133/2. BYB91133/1 I can Google, its ais a Ericsson BYB 91133/1 Base frame GBF. The /2 number did not turn up. Anyone know what the /2 Is? I bet its either part of the same frame or slightly different one.

It looks like the plastic conduit for the backhaul is in place but I have no way of knowing if it has fiber in it. The ground in the cage is no longer tore up and looks to be final condition with no more trenching or big holes to follow anytime soon. An area I couldn't really seen in very good is covered in a clear temporary tarp and surrounded by older cabinets. That's where I could make out the other box. There may have been more but I didn't see any.


Is it ok to refer to the cell site number? To be honest I only know about it from the sponsor map area. It just would be easier to pin down which site I was talking about than near 1-270 and South a bit on West Florissant.

I was parked at 38.75401/-90.27868 ad had a RSSI of -45 and got 0.52Mbps/0.45Mbdps with a 210ms ping. Ping seems to be down from 300-400 but through put is about the same. The entrance to the site is from the Dellwood Recreation Center also know as the Dellwood Indoor Soccer Arena. I found out Sunday is not a good day to go site checking there. Its packed for a game.

No new panels on the tower of course.

I bet it is just box one and box two of the frame.

everything has been very very very stagnant lately since the snow should start catching some traction again since its starting to warm back up a little bit there were a few towers in the works before the crap weather so we should see some movement sooner rather than later

FWIW, I spotted a few towers on 35 from between Bethany and Cameron to the IA border which appear to have new panels + least two RRUs.  No stopping to confirm equipment, but I did have eHRPD service.

Ok, I can now confirm the following towers curenlty have crews on them installing pannels in the Joplin, MO area.

* for site IDs please see sponsor section *

I got pictures of 2 out of the 3, did not notice 460 was being worked on until we passed it on Rangeline Rd. Seems to be at least 2-3 guys on each tower, and at least 1-2 guys on the ground at each site.
