  1. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    https://imgur.com/a/9AA85 It has an RJ45 input on the back of the eNb board, say if they need to dial in. The WiFi may just be for the same thing, but easier to access.

    Looks just like my OG equipment.

    That makes a ton of sense! Thanks, I didn't dig that far yet. You guys are the best.
  4. Phone restarting

    I thought of you when it happened.
  5. Phone restarting

    Yeah actually, our Nexus 6p power cycled about two days ago, then yesterday. best part; then our 5x did, and went into bootloop sickness finally. We are now the proud owners of a z2 force that rebooted 5 minutes ago. What gives?
  6. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Also something I am curious about, The Ninja has what looks to be 2 GPS u.fl and two LTE ports. I have only seen PCIe chips with one GPS port. Is that just a newer, better GPS radio than the unit I am using, which has one or is it possibly because of the LTE relay capabilities? They both plug into the Ninja. Maybe Mr Tim or AJ could help us out with that one.
  7. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Yes, that is the LTE radio. The FCC docs don't have any components on the boards so I wondered what it looked like in there all put together, so I took it apart.

    https://photos.app.goo.gl/wRoKXpqX5CJDjwev1 Looks like this guy has an eSIM, or at least the slot is empty on the Ninja radio side of the board. First device I have seen that in yet. Neat.

    Took a couple days after work but I found the Ninja modem inside this thing. Time to hook up some big 'ol antennae to this puppy.

  11. It has an LTE radio, so that requires a sim card to authenticate on the network. Sim cards are given numbers to make the handshake, also so the network knows who it is talking to on a data call. I believe this is why it is attached to a line. That and it may offer some form of accounting for magic box locations, inventory, and user counts.
  12. I keep encountering surplus cellular antennas on a few feeds I follow. I wonder would getting one of these function any better as a receive antenna then the antenna farm I built in my attic of yagi's and parabolics? I know there are many factors involved in signal quality, but I imagine these would have a nice achievable gain. I could put a small motor on to operate the remote tilt, if I wanted to be a cooldood. It would clean up a few wires, as they have 50 ohm connectors that run parellal, are multiband, so your low band ports and high band ports are all in one directional run. Instead of a run to each separate antenna or a splitter/combiner between low and high band antennas in our setup. Get a pair of those out back and that sure would look high speed, and pretty slick even, compared to my 8 antennoctpus we built. While I pretty much have talked myself into getting one above, I would like any input from folks who have actually explored the hardware, how many elements they have and maybe how to identify that. I have not found much on any one trying this hardware for a home user network, so I figured this is my first place to ask. Have a great weekend everyone.
  13. Amazing. I look forward to listening. Great post as usual.
