I didn't get the email. Would you mind please sending it again?

 

I sent a note with the PayPal refund.

I just sent in a donation to become a S4GRU Premier Sponsor. Very exciting.

 

Welcome. I upgraded your account about an hour ago. Thanks for supporting S4GRU.

Rob, thanks for providing all the great content. I threw a few bucks in a week ago, but plan on adding more. Also, if you need any help moderating the site, I currently am a mod on a Mustang forum and have been doing so on various auto sites for years.

Hey, I was only able to donate a dollar right now. I am kinda poor but I want to contribute to the site. More will come in the future. Just kinda tight right now. Great site and I hope I can be of service to the folks needing information in the Metro St. Louis area.

Yeah i know from another thread :)

 

Your donation was rejected, because it showed up as a renewal. We do not accept $1 donation for renewals. However, I have discovered the error and fixed it. You have been upgraded to the Sponsor level. You should be good to go.

Depends what the surrounding buildings are. I am in OC and my phone toggles between two sites. I am about 1.5 miles from one and 1 mile from the other. My room happens to be equally weak for the two sites about -111dBm. I am waiting for the closest site to be come active.

Well in my house i use a Airwave. I can get away without it but the speed and signal is not great. I suppose i am pulling off that tower's 3G cause there is no other tower close to my house. the Next tower is like 5 miles away.

 

Now the wait will be till they put up the panels etc and get the tower going so i can see if sprint is worth keeping or not

Sticky situation your in there. Hopefully everything works out. I've always had good experiences. The site that serves your area must not be running the 800 for voice. From what I can tell through experiencing pre on the 1900 is speeds are greatly reduced in doors vs out doors and distance. With the two serving my area of is rare to see more than 4mps in doors. Outside of my house I get around 7-9mps. When I'm right in front of a site I got 33mps and the other at 20mps.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
