So it is written , so it will be done.

Please join me in congratulating AJ in his promotion to S4GRU Technical Editor.  Accolades are his only payment, as all our Staff positions are unpaid volunteers.

 

Thank you AJ for your thousands of hours invested in making S4GRU such an acclaimed resource.  Your technical expertise and persistent pursuit for greater wireless knowledge have benefited our community beyond measure!

 

:thx:

As I have had the title for two weeks now, I guess this means that I passed the trial period.  Hot damn and hallelujah!

How does someone become one of these staff members and what is the pay scale, did you get a raise? ;)

Yes, I did get a raise from -$200/yr to -$100/yr.

Will you stop teasing the new recruits AJ. 

 

We do get raises. Robert actually gave us all a 10% raise just a few days ago.

 

0 x 10% = 0

Oh wait, there is no number before that zero.  :blush:

 

:P

Craig did not make it past the first interview for the tech editor position.  But we did offer him an unpaid internship.

Hey Robert, when you get a chance, download the proshot app into your windows phone while it is still free. Since no one gets paid anyway.

Did Joey know that Windows Phone had been "flagged" for being in the bathroom?

Please join me in congratulating Mr.Nuke in his promotion to a Full S4GRU Moderator. Mr.Nuke has been tirelessly working on our B26 Reporting Project and doing some backup moderating for S4GRU.

 

Now he will have full moderator powers and responsibilities as well. Thanks Seth for all you do for the S4GRU Community. Your contributions are noticeable and integral with our mission, and will be appreciated by S4GRU and our members for a long, long time.

 

:thx:

If Mr.Nuke has "full moderator powers," does that mean he now gets to answer the red telephone, has access to the launch codes, and gets to put his finger on the doomsday button?  God help us all.

I hope you also have access to the SAC bunker.  Otherwise, being so close to Offutt AFB, once you push that button, you are going to be dead soon.

    • I signed up for Sprint's unlimited kickstart plan and noticed there is a lot of "extended network" coverage near me. Today was the first chance I had to test it when I left native coverage. It switches to US Cellular but all I got was the R indicator on my phone. Same indicator when it switches to Verizon. I have my settings as Automatic for network instead of Home only. I also have data roaming turned off. Basically my question is, how can I know when I am on extended network instead of roaming? Most of the coverage west of me shows extended network with very little roaming areas. I don't want to get charged for roaming on accident. 
    • I say what a wase to design turn to fail in 5 years instead of design then to last for a long time better for environment
    • Nice set of CA combos! I'm guessing it's 2x2 only right? I'm waiting for a 4x4 modem with those CA combos or better (4x+ CA) to be more future proofed, since the AT&T tower I'm using now doesn't have 4x4 yet or even B4/66 (adjacent ones do). I'm just not sure how to orient the antennas for 4x4... Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
    • They're in a low enough orbit that they should burn up within a year or two I think if they don't boost their altitude. They're designed to deorbit quickly upon failure. And I believe they're also designed to only last like 5 years before needing replaced due to running out of fuel? At least SpaceX's are. They said they will have to continuingly replace them. So space junk shouldn't be a problem, unless they collide at enough velocity that some pieces are ejected to a higher orbit. But I think studied were performed to show the risk of this is minimal. The bigger issue I believe would be its effect on Earth based visual astronomy (see Starlink "train"). Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
    • A VPN will skew the results. You should not have a VPN on whole doing speed test mapping. VoLTE will not matter, they operate on different EUTRA sessions https://s4gru.com/entry/439-sprints-casting-call-of-voice-over-actors-an-in-depth-analysis-of-volte-calling-and-vowifi/ it shouldn't even be able to tell that you have VoLTE on. That being said, if you're on an active VoLTE call, then that may affect things. Recently, Sprint started preferring dropping to band 26 during tower handoffs while on a VoLTE call. So a call may start out on B41, but if you're moving, when it hands off to the next tower it often switches to B26. This improves VoLTE performance and quality, but will result in slower data speeds and showing B26 available instead of b25 or b41 in your mapping. Congestion on B26 has no effect at all on VoLTE calls, but will be reflected in speed tests performed while on the call   Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
