Pictures of Panels and RRUs up close


Recommended Posts

I see I was correct in the independent downtilt control of 1900 EV/1X, 800SMR, and 1900 LTE. Very nice feature indeed! 800SMR should be booming when it's 100% in a market.

 

Thanks for the pics and they didn't care you were taking pictures?

They didnt care, they were too busy doing other things, all they said "look, but dont touch"

Hopefully 0 downtilt LTE 1900 covers the entire area of 800 cdma with downtilt. If they can cover that scenario, they could pretty much cover anything I think.

 

Not sure I understand the statement. 800 is going to cover farther than 1900 then there is the difference of 1x and LTE.

Ya my thinking might have been crazy. I was thinking about a medium density area, you would probably want to downtilt the 800, but not the 1900. Since you have more spectrum/phones in the 1900 LTE, you would want it to cover the entire area. I was also thinking that in that situation maybe 1900 LTE would travel slightly further than 800 LTE since you have independent control of LTE on 1900.

 

The more I think about it you could downtilt your 800 as much as you want to make sure 800 and 1900 cover the same area - Disregard as irrelevance.

I hope in 2014 sprint will announce.... Network Vision 2 (The massive rural expansion using SMR).

 

This. This is all Sprint needs to do. I don't care if they charge as much as AT&T or Verizon then. They would keep unlimited data.

Great pics there appreciate it alot!

 

At my HS reunion this weekend I found out one of my old friends does work with cell towers now. Something where he climbs up takes some readings and then plugs them in and does some work in CAD to an extent... Guy himself wasn't there but he's evidently been flying all over doing it. Was in PR before and just got into FL recently. Never installs anything just takes the survey basically.

 

Also got a girl on my softball team that actually does work on the towers here in NC area for all the companies. Hasn't done anything for sprint lately but is gonna let me know when she does next time... Climbing cell towers 600ft would be the last thing I'd of guessed this girl did too...

 

What were the markings on the antennas for btw? I remember the Miami video guy saying "..." One was for alpha sector..." And think I remember one of your pics saying that but don't know how they classify the sectors exactly either...

This deserves a whole topic!!! Not sure where the topic would go, but I would love to see Sprint take on Verizon's 850 coverage. I know some places in northern Minnesota that T-Mobile and Sprint would both like to venture into (selfish).

    • Verizon site at Woodbury Commons finally got C-band. I'm seeing upwards of 600Mbps there, a massive improvement over the <1Mbps I used to see. LTE is now at 10-20Mbps which is significantly better than before where speed tests would often fail. My only complaint is that C-band is super inconsistent. Not sure if it's a software issue but sometimes I'm connected to it and get the 600Mbps speeds previously mentioned and other times I connect and only see 15Mbps. Seems like whatever load balancing the network is trying to do is still shoving a ton of people to LTE, even in conditions where I have a strong C-band signal.  — — — — — You're absolutely right. The site on top of Bais Sarah Hall at 6101 16th Ave got decommissioned. Sad that they haven't installed a new site to fill in that coverage gap.  — — — — — In other news a carrier reached out to the board of my grandmother's building in Brooklyn about installing antennas on top of it so she called me today because she knows I map cell towers and she said a lot of people in her building, especially the folks on the upper floors, are worried about the health effects lol. I asked her if she knew what carrier it would be but she said she doesn't know. A quick glance at Cellmapper tells me it's either Dish or AT&T since Verizon and T-Mobile both have sites within a two block radius of her building but AT&T barely builds new sites so I'm leaning Dish. They're asking for a 25-year lease with an option to renegotiate the lease after 10-years. The board of her co-op said that if they do it, maintenance fees will go down since they'll be offset by the rent that the carrier would be paying them. She said she already voted in favor of it but she thinks that a lot of the older people in her building are against it.
    • Galaxy S7 FE most certainly doesn't have the same level of NR CA (if at all), it also looks like it doesn't have SA NR, so it's is inherently going to be much slower since most of the spectrum is now focused on NR rather than LTE. It's likely the same generation radio as the S21 (or maybe S20). Having trouble finding which it would be.
    • T-Mobile seems to be paying close attention to how much of B2 they refarm for NR, as on this trip down to South Padre Island I saw both 20x20 n25 and 20x20 B2 (but not both simultaneously) at various points on the trip. At South Padre itself, seems like someone else has 2.5 GHz licensed so the n41 setup here is 20+80 MHz. Speeds are still decent, but VZW has 100+60 MHz n77 live (and AT&T has some 80+40).
    • I called T Mobile the same day I came home from work and started encountering issues. They told me one site was down for maintenance with no estimated date of completion. This was back on March 15, 2023. I contacted revik2 through Reddit and told me it was tower ID BQ04933A. Can you see if this tower was decommissioned or still operational?
    • Two two devices, both are somewhat recent as far as age... tablet can't get the speed that the phone gets sitting side by side... probably the tablet doesn't have CA.. not sure. Galaxy tab S7 FE.. and galaxy s23 ultra   https://ibb.co/zx93nTs
