Diesel generators


Recommended Posts

I was searching articles in the ABQ Journal for permit updates. U found this article about how Verizon applied for several diesel generators for backup supply energy. It got me wondering if Sprint does the same thing in areas it has had power outages and or other situations?

Sprint does something like that here in LR I think. Because with this latest snow storm we were out of power and the power was out at the tower to but I still had full service. Although it was a pain to make a call or text or anything that required data. But I think it had to do with everyone on the tower all at once. My guess was that they had generators at the tower or something of that nature.

Many of the sites nationwide have some sort of backup power system. Most are diesel generators simply due to the simplicity and age, some use banks of batteries that are fed from the main power until it goes down. I believe most of the newer sites have started using solar, hydrogen fuel cells, etc. where available and viable.

The ones around me have literally nothing near it. It may be due to the fact that my city is a huge flood zone with waters rising 15-20 feet (1/2- 2/3 the height of local towers) if the levees break...

Only about 3 or 4 of the 20 sites in Northern New Mexico have generators. And they may belong to other carriers for all I know. Not common at all around here.

Every Sprint site that I have been to in Florida has had a generator. I think the potential for power outages caused by natural disasters has something to do with it.

 

Yeah, areas that are more prone to power outages (for whatever reason, usually weather but it may be something as simple as the local power company being unreliable) are more likely to have backup power available on hand stationed at the site semi-permanently or permanently.

Some sites have permanent generators, either LPG, CNG, or diesel, and some that are less prone to long outages or that have increased battery capacity need to have portable generators pulled to them.

 

The NetVision sites boast much more battery power than the legacy equipment, I'm not sure what that will do to the number of generators out there.

    • Let me take a look tonight. 
    • Actually, I notice it says whole clusters were skipped because of invalid TAC values.  It says "File exported for inspection."  I do have Log Sites with Missing TAC checked. Robert
    • I was able to figure this out by looking at your diagnostic reports -- you're seeing n7 because your Galaxy A32 is reporting it natively as n7.. Samsung will have to fix that on their end unfortunately. Do the engineering screens report it correctly? I have an A32 test device but I have not seen it connect to n41 (or "n7") yet. If I do, I'll try to troubleshoot and nag Samsung. EDIT: After I installed the new Android 12 update, I'm now seeing the n7 bug too -- I will reach out to Samsung. They were very responsive when I reported some related glitches with the initial A32 software.
    • I appreciate the feedback today -- another new is SCP beta rolling out right now! It should resolve the force closes that started with yesterday's beta release; I also made additional improvements that hopefully(?) will reduce ongoing issues with overall app stability.
    • I'm noticing a spike in instability while driving around testing the app today also.. more freeze-ups than crashes, but it's probably all related. Hopefully any crash reports that are collected can shed some light on it for me. I'll be looking into it later tonight.
