New Cell Tower - Overland Park Soccer Complex

I saw this while driving to workout this morning. It is as the Overland Park Soccer Complex. I looked at the Sprint map and did not see a tower at this location. There are 3 towers just northeast of this location, serving all the carriers, at the Blue Valley Athletic complex.

I don't understand. What "Sprint map" are you referring to? Sprint does not pubiish maps of all Sprint towers. If you look at the sponsor map at S4GRU you will find the Sprint tower in the nearby area, and it does not look like your photos. Your photos do not look like typical cell towers to me. What makes you think these photos show a Sprint tower at all?

If you go to https://network.sprint.com/ you can put in your zip or city and it will show you towers for that zip code.

Try going to the cell site up close. More than likley, it's American Tower putting in a new site for AT&T

I plan on doing that tomorrow. It is at the maintenance facility for the golf course and there is a sidewalk that runs right beside it. Just didn't have time get out of the truck today.

No, that link will only show you a small subset of Sprint towers that have been scheduled for "band-aid" maintenance upgrades of the legacy network.

 

As a sponsor, you have access to maps of virtually all Sprint towers in the interactive project maps, since the NV sites are essentially all the current Sprint sites. Look at those maps at S4GRU.

I talked to the workers this morning, and it is a Verizon tower! He said it would be a straight pole.

A "straight pole" because VZW likes giving its subs the shaft...

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.
