  1. No, this is adding support for an additional antenna. A new antenna is required for B41 whether it is a mini-macro or an 8T8R. Any additional antennas will need additional support arms.
  2. I wouldn't count on it. If they have been doing mini-macros at other sites, I wouldn't expect them to change that up just yet. I'm going to slide these over to the ABQ/El Paso thread it a bit since they don't really pertain to the topics(s) in this thread.
  3. Yep, they've added a second set of supports for additional antennas.
  4. Looks like added support, possibly for whatever is going up next.
  5. The small cell looks like a Verizon site.
  6. 8665 would be a 5x5 G Block carrier. Is it possible it is being aggregated with a second B25 carrier? A 5x5 maxes out at ~37Mbps under ideal conditions, usually you will see mid 20s under good conditions.

    Network Vision/LTE - Puerto Rico/Virgin Islands Market

    I suspect the batteries are meant to last for an hour. If they are still original, they probably didn't anticipate the power being out for days/months. Only a fraction of sites have generator backups. Even in Kansas City, Kansas (Sprint's home market) when we lost power most of the Sprint sites in the area went down after a couple hours as the batteries failed. Only a few actually had generators.
  8. If you use the app Tapatalk, it should allow you to add images. Otherwise, upload them to another hosting site like imgur or photobucket and then embed the image here.

    Extended networks always show as roaming, even though the data use doesn't count as roaming.

    Google voice integration going away June 1st

    I gave up GV integration last year when we switched to a new plan that included the 10GB hotspot. The biggest thing I missed was being able to reply to text messages from my Chrome browser, but got over that pretty quickly. Now, I didn't use the GV app much at all, I had it send texts to my phone like normal so they were all stored with the messaging app when I lost GV. You don't have to port your GV-Sprint number over to solely GV. You can keep that as your Sprint number. How important is the call forwarding feature? I'm sure there are other ways to accomplish that, though it may not be as simple.

    When there isn't a specific GCI pattern (like we have on Sprint) the display is driven by EARFCN *and* PLMN. B13 comes from EARFCN.

    That's a limit imposed by IP Board. You can use a third party to host screenshots, like Imgur or Photobucket, and then embed the images here.

    Yes.... but that still falls in the LTE 700 band... look at the EARFCN in his screenshot.

    It's saying 700 because of the EARFCN, not GCI.

    I am not sure how often the roaming data amounts update. I suspect it is "extended LTE," or another network that Sprint considers as native use even though it shows as roaming.

    Shows as roaming. Wonder if it will actually count as roaming or if it's "extended" (pseudo-native)

    If you had full GV integration, meaning your GV number was your Sprint number, those things did not work as expected.

    Network Vision/LTE - Boston Market (all of Massachusetts)

    Small cell on the roof? We've seen a number of those pop up in other markets.

  21. Yes, on a normal 8T8R site, 03/04/05 is the normal second carrier. On 4T4R tri-band antennas in Samsung markets, 09/0A/0B has been used fairly regularly. I do not know off the top of my head what is done with the 3rd carrier on the tri-band antenna sites (normal 8T8R being 06/07/08, which is already covered).
  22. Based on the EARFCN and it's from the Denver area, it is the second carrier. As far as I've seen, that is the typical ending for a second carrier tri-band antenna site in a Samsung market?
  23. This is standard second carrier for Samsung tri-band sites. As Denver is a Samsung market, it is to be expected.
  24. Quick check of the radar for the morning drive. https://t.co/uEVQE0H3Lo

  25. They sort of fixed the Missouri market issues that came with the last update, so that's good. Fix one, break another I guess. Ha!
