Network Vision/LTE - Tucson/Yuma Market

Well I thought the Yuma market was dead as far as any upgrades or update, I just saw a crew working on the sprint site on one of the towers. Looks like they are installing band 41 antennas. I will post pictures when I get there again in a little while.

Is that two B41 mini macros per sector?

 

Can't tell from the pictures though I do see an ALU radio behind the shorter / smaller antenna pair.

I don't see mini macros or 8t8r radio installed.

 

It could be a split sector site too cause the antennas are pointed elsewhere. Keep an eye on it

I'm sure the antennas are pointed that way because the crew just came in and installed all 3 sectors really quick. But I will definitely keep an eye on this one. I go there very often.

So keep an eye. That's an unconventional setup.

Here is a link to the Hi Res pictures of the site on 8th St and 9th Ave.

Those are CCI Wideband Bi-Sector array antennas for 1710-2170 MHz. 

 

I'm guessing 6 sector split with one antenna for LTE (4x4 MIMO) & one for CDMA

Second tower in Yuma being worked on.. Ave B and 20th street. ????. The crew couldn't install anything up too because of a bird's nest.

So this not a sprint tower based on the spectrum noted? ATT??

What's the GCI?

A 5 MHz TDD B41 channel should be about somewhere between a 3 and 5mhz fdd carrier (in performance)

Since when has Sprint been deploying sub-20-MHz channels on Band 41? This doesn’t seem cost effective to me...

 

It's in markets with very little B41 spectrum, and the B25 network is overtaxed.  It is very uncommon.  Sprint has very little B41 spectrum in Yuma and cannot deploy B26, yet.  And when they do it will likely be only 3MHz.  There are not a lot of sites in the Yuma area, so it's not costing much.

Strange, Signal check is still saying LTE 1900

Because of the last two digits of the GCI.  It appears they are reusing the same suffix for Narrow Carrier B41 as B25.  I would have expected it to be the same as other B41 or something unique.

    • 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.   
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
    • Same with factory unlocked
    • June security update is out (S22U TMO)
