So I was walking to my car when I noticed people working on something so I snagged a picture. As this is a sprint site.. first thing i thought was "hell yes network vision!!" then I remembered we're not to start till next year... fml... bandaid fix I suppose.

 

Here ye go. Should be easy to identify the panels (especially the one that looks "newer" than the others).

 

@Sacramento City College if you're wondering...

This is a privately owned and operated site that talks about sprint's network vision roll out but please don't say this is a sprint site.

I think he meant that is a Sprint cell site. ;)

EDIT: Total reading fail on my part, that's what happens when I try to read anything first thing in the morning.

One issue though... The network maintenance to add voice or data bandwidth doesn't require work to be done to the panels.

Yes. It may not be a normal maintenance issue, but rather a repair issue.

Actually, that looks like a Clearwire WiMax panel they are working on (too wide for Sprint). It looks like the Sprint PCS panels are the ones on the very top rim, or the bottom left.

That's a lot of staff for so small a lot...  Sorry, I just had too  :ninja:

It's actually not a small lot..... There's 5 rows, ~50 cars per, bumper - bumper, in that part alone. There's more additional staff parking in their own little lots. Students, like me, get a 5 level garage + another huge parking lot. Good thing about the parking garage though. The 5th level is directly across from all the antennas on the water tower.

I couldn't resist, much like how now I want to make a comment on this lot being a grower vs. a shower....  maybe I should lay off the booze for a few.  

 

I actually Google searched the lot before commenting, but couldn't help myself on the photo presented.

    • 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.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
