S4GRU/Robert Schedule

Howdy y'all. Hola amigos! Hey...wuzzup?

 

I am going to be slow to respond in many instances the next two weeks. I leave for vacation on Thursday morning and I'm extremely busy before leaving. At work and personally. I leave you in the competent hands of our Staff and Moderation Team. AJ (WiWavelength) and Roy (themuffinman) also have Moderator controls during this time to help Scott (Pyroscott), Dave (twospirits) and Deval (Deval).

 

I will be checking in at least daily, and sometimes more often. But please be patient with me in responding to forum posts, article comments and PM's. I would really appreciate if our more senior members can help answer questions that you know the answers to. Especially market inquiries.

 

Also, if any of our staff want access to our Facebook account, I'd be happy to give you Admin rights to the page to help me out while I'm gone. It takes more patience than dealing with the boards though.

 

Before leaving on Thursday, here are my priorities:

 

High Priority:

 

Ft. Wayne/South Bend Article

Miami/West Palm Premier Sponsor Map

 

Medium Priority:

 

July Schedule Maps

Tampa and Orlando Premier Sponsor Maps

Radio Performance Comparison Article

 

Low Priority:

 

Post/Comment Responses

PM Responses

Facebook/Google+/Twitter responses

 

I plan to do any NV sites complete updates remotely, whenever they should come in.

 

* If there is anything not on this list, but I said I would take care of, feel free to post a reply post below. And then I will prioritize it. Thanks!

High Priority: Enjoy your vacation.

*Fixed*

 

As I think about this in light of something that AJ wrote in another thread, maybe doing work on this site while on vacation and not encumbered with job responsibilities is part of Robert enjoying his vacation.

What is wardriving? When it comes to modern vernacular, I can be pretty unhip. I am a major dork.

Driving around looking for unprotected WiFi to latch onto. Cheaper per gig than Vzw 4G...if you don't count the gas.

I guess my meaning was more geared to looking for more cell sites to "out" on the forums..

 

We already have a full list of cell sites for Sprint here, and nowhere near Robert will be getting LTE soon. So it's not really necessary to look for stuff like that :)

 

On the other hand, I'll be in three different Sprint LTE markets over the next week or so (DFW, San Antonio, Austin) so I will definitely be doing cellular wardriving 8D

Give us an update of how the cell service is out there. Maybe that guy from SD that was posting a while ago can show you the locations of South Dakota's 3 Sprint towers... and 1 WiMax tower. LOL

Yeah, I once mistakenly gave him about three-fiddy. I won't make that mistake again.

So much for getting it all done. I'm leaving for vacation now. I will check in with you guys at least once per day. I get back on Friday, July 27th!

Jeez that brings back memories. I remember doing that with my Orinoco card, magnetic mount antenna on the roof, and Garmin GPS hooked up via serial cable mapping things out. Then I would submit to the national map. Had to be over 8 years ago. Used to be a ups tech and drove around a lot. I didn't need the WiFi though as I had a vzw card for work. Just did it for fun.

I am now home. Slept in my own bed last night. Have lots to do this weekend, but I'm going to try to get back in the swing of things today. It was nice to have a full vacation.

    • Just mapped at least 8 5G small cells (all 109xxxx gNBs) while driving on the Southern State. They all seem to be n25/n41. I'm pretty sure nearly all of them are upgrades of existing small cells as opposed to new builds but I'm glad to see Crown Castle/T-Mobile hard at work getting midband 5G on all of these. Each of the unpinned gNBs belong to 1-2 small cells. I still can't pin these sites until the Cellmapper devs give us the option to split cells for 5G sites.
    • Their offers have been crap recently, so this is just more evidence to not buy from T-Mobile. 
    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.
