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.

Technically speaking you have to go to the StratCom (SAC successor) bunker to answer the red telephone and push the button so I think I'm covered.

Yes, S4GRU supports SETIH -- the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Hopefully -- because there is definitely no intelligence on this staff.

I prefer the title "Comic Entertainer" instead of clown, and more specifically "Serious Comic Entertainer" since we carry the ban hammer.  :devil:

Now if I start to hear you say "the devil made me do it" and "sock it to me" I'm gonna think you warped back in time and need to see the guys that have the funny long sleeve jackets. Check you into the rubber room motel.

Please join me in congratulating Trip in joining the Staff here at S4GRU. He has been a very helpful member and his expertise and tireless efforts tracking and plotting the wireless industry are nearly unequalled.  He will be right at home among the wireless geeks in the Hallowed Virtual Halls here at S4GRU.

Now he will have full moderator powers and responsibilities as well.  Welcome to THE ZOO!

:thx:

Call me nuts, but I think I saw this coming. This dood is intense wireless. I enjoy seeing your work, it is very thorough and excellent reading to say the least.

 

Congratulations and thank you for your time, folks with your level of skill that volunteer are plain awesome. So much great insight as well. Keep sharing :)

In celebration, we all should go Tripping...

 

 

As an aside, "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" is an all around great album -- for various reasons, on numerous levels.

 

;)

    • 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
