If I remember correctly, the boxes said Anderson on the side, could be wrong though. Never seen the stuff on the ground before. It looks like it would 5 RRUs per sector, the three attached to the panel assembly and the two additional ones on the rack assembly. That was just put together over the weekend so it will probably be installed either this week or next. If it still happens to be on the ground next time I am there I will get a better ground pic.

Could be a 5 RRU site.. Very possible with 2 combiners per 1900 side of the antenna. Is your market a 15mhz paired PCS one? (not counting the G Block)

Not a clue, its the West KY market. This is in Louisville.

Interesting antennas..wish you had a better zoom so I could see who makes them.  

 

Took some better pictures today, everything is still laying on the ground.  It does appear that this is going to be a 5 RRU/sector site.

So there are 15 RRUs on the ground you can see? Man that's some serious weight going up. And they had to ground mount my little 2 per sector site near the house on a guyed lattice site.

Yep, as long as I am looking at the right thing. Below, each RRU that I see is circled in yellow, the red circle is the two additional RRUs on the rack assembly for another sector since I cut them off at the top of the picture. Someone has been in there since Monday and arranged the panels, rack segments to be under each sector instead of piled up in the center.

Here are pics of the equipment mounted. Hasn't been accepted yet.

That's a crazy site.  What state and county is this located in?

Its in Louisville, KY (Jefferson county). Its on the campus of the University of Louisville. It is the only site I have seen around here like that.

From what I could see, it looks like they have 15x15mhz (not counting 5mhz G block) there so it looks like that site is going to fill it all with 11 possible CDMA carriers.

I wonder how much weight and wind load all those RRU adds to a tower. From what I can tell, a Samsung high-capacity site does the same amount of work with 2 panels and 3 RRU's per sector.  If it is just a normal site, a Samsung uses 1 panel and 2 RRU per sector.  AT&T and TMobile sites are just as bad... In many cases using 3 or 4 of those big fat low+high band panels per sector and a hodge podge of RRUs.  Verizon is starting to roll out RRUs here in my market.  Looks like only 1 RRU per sector on theirs so far, but they have 4 antennas per sector.

The one RRU at VZW sites is just for the Band 4 LTE being added. LTE 750 and CDMA don't use RRU's on VZW. And interestingly, not all VZW Band 4 LTE OEM's are using RRU's. The one here in South Dakota is not.

    • That very same crane from the previous page was used this past two days in Bloomington at a site off of 94th and Penn that has a Sprint site but the antenna on top of it is not (I thought it was T-Mobile), something horrible must have happened because they took the old antenna completely off the top of the mast and set it on the tarmac at the base of the antenna, replaced the RRUs, the cabinet was opened and literally everything inside it appeared to be replaced, then the antenna at the top was replaced by Monday morning and they were literally working all day sunday on it.  The nearest I can think is the site above the Sprint antennas must have sustained lightning damage.  I have never seen such extensive work on a cell site taking place on a sunday literally going from before 8 in the morning until well after 8 at night.  I have extensive pictures.   It appears the Sprint site was tangentially involved because there is still equipment and additional guy wiring in place and cabling going to parts of the site including the Sprint cabinets.  Most curious to say the least.  It almost looks like power was prevented from going to the site.

    • As a trader the market chatter is that an announcement could come as soon as tomorrow if not by then by end of week. 
    • USCC should count as same coverage as being on Sprint, the R is for roaming into 1X not LTE. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
