Converted(iDen to CDMA) site Los Angeles,CA


Recommended Posts

Robert, Here you have some pictures of the converted(iDen to CDMA) site in the neighborhood of South Central, Los Angeles, CA. It looks identical to the picture I saw on google maps, same panels. Maybe the changed the ground base or...dunno. Take a look at it

The panels are different and there are less of them on each sector. But I do not see any RRU's. But approx. 5% of sites will not get RRU's if the structure cannot support them. I'm not sure what to make of this. Thanks for the photos.

Interesting - think that the wood pool doesn't support any additional weight/structural mass on it?

This maybe what I'm seeing here in Florida I have come across a few sites that are marked to have NV/LTE done but it's not a Sprint site its a Nextel site

Except the sites you're seeing are actually upgraded to NV, no?

What? All sites to date in our updates have come from our existing CDMA sites database. This is the first one that was previously a Nextel only site. I had to move it from Nextel database to the NV database.

This is the old iDEN site photo from Google Maps. There were four panels per sector and these are definitely different panels. This site has definitely been upgraded.

 

RayLuis, did you run any performance testing while there or cycle to try to get LTE?

 

On another note, sites that do not get RRU's also will not get 800 deployments. No CDMA 800 nor LTE 800.

Yeah Robert..speeds were close to 1Mbps down and between 1 and 1.10 Mbps up.The Pings were high thought...almost 500ms

Ah, good find! Is it possible these sites were converted using legacy hardware? It certainly looks like legacy panels rather than NV ones in the pics which were posted of the tower now.

They look brand new white and curved, unlike any legacy panels I've ever seen. Its possible that panels with ground based radios are a little different than RRU panels. They may not be able to handle as many carriers. That might be why there are three panels in a sector. Most NV sites have one NV panel per sector.

Regardless the answer' date=' I'm glad a Nextel site got converted. Is this in a gap in coverage? Or was this picked to add capacity?[/quote']

 

The nearest site is not but 12 blocks away. Probably for capacity.

    • I like VICE.  They actually report on news no one else is willing to report. A lot of the places they go no sane person would want to be there.  They put their life on the line in many cases to get a story. From stories about the avocado wars in Mexico, being in the front lines against ISIS and Ukraine, to being embedded with terrorist organizations.   FAA might have some conspiracy 5G nut on their team or something.  At work ever year we have some one come in and say "hey, can you turn off the WIFI in my room? I don't want its radiation".  It doesn't make sense and their reasoning is always uneducated conspiracy. I can see someone coming into my office and acting crazy over C band disregarding everything else.
    • I think on esims it depends on how they implement it. If you can freely activate them on one phone while having it loaded on many that would be great.   I will let you know when I see Boost Mobile native 5g live here. So far no sign of even the plmn being active which I figure will be my first indicator. I look at changing networks with the TNX Sim and seem to get a full list of all carriers and their alternate plmns.
    • This is a result of the change I mentioned above, sparked by @PedroDaGr8 trying to log AT&T cells with a non-AT&T SIM that was reporting "out of service" but still capturing cell info. For the moment (subject to change as I keep testing and getting feedback), the "Connecting to" prefix will disappear when you connect in a scenario like that. I may adjust it to show a special prefix like "Limited LTE" or "No Data LTE" to make it more clear what is going on, but I also need to make sure that's only appearing at the proper times. When you were seeing just "LTE" in your screenshots, was there anything unusual about your connection? I see the app indicated you couldn't make calls; could you transfer data? Can you send a diagnostic report next time you see that?   I'm seeing this more frequently, unfortunately -- it has something to do with Android's power saving efforts I believe. Was the app in the foreground when it happened? When the screen updates, the notification and home screen widget are also updated -- but as seen with the widget for the past couple of years, Android doesn't always execute the update. I'm constantly trying to find ways around these limitations, since the app is useless if it's displaying stale data.
    • Bleh, hope not.  The eSIM is a huge step backwards to the bad old days and I have no desire to encourage their use. But in any event, maybe I should get Boost service, then, if people are already seeing it.  I can use it for AT&T until Dish native gear goes live in this area.  Have to ponder that a bit. - Trip
    • The T-Mobile and AT&T sims could also be basically generic MVNO sims. Hoping if they need a new sim, it's esim. I did hear that testers did get one.  Analyzing cellmapper data appeared to show it was found by people using the T-Mobile sim.
