This picture was posted to my facebook page today! They were posting about the clouds forming a State of Texas outline. All I could look at was the cell tower and wondering who's it was. :rofl:

When I see this picture, I see God parting the clouds to check out if upgrades have been completed.

Welcome to my world. I walk the streets now looking at panels and trying to figure out who's on that site.

 

My girlfriend thinks I'm weird.

 

Thankfully mine embraces my nerdiness :)

Do not worry. Just keep going down this path. Soon enough, you will no longer have a job nor a girlfriend who thinks you are weird. Then, you can walk the streets looking at panels full time.

 

:P

When my GF finds me messing with her phone she just assumes that I'm checking signal/technical stuff.

I think I should be offended by this?! :wacko:

This is too funny, before I read what you typed all I was looking at was the tower. I would have never noticed the shape of texas if you didn't mention it. LOL

Hmm, interesting. I guess if you are a jealous boyfriend, you should become or pretend to be a wireless signal nerd. Then, you can check her handset for illicit SMS, and she will think that you are just geeking on the engineering screens.

AJ, that the funniest thing I've read all day! I'm on the East Coast and I've been up a while too.

In the words of Linda Richmand "I'm feeling a little verklempt" after looking at that picture.

 

kckid, it does reminds me of a song:

 

"Some may boast of prowess bold, of the school they think so grand..."

My two year old points out every cell tower to me while driving as "Big tower daddy, big tower!!!!"

 

You're a good daddy! Teaching him the ways of the Force.

Explaining things to my kids makes me realize how little I know.

 

Recently, my son pointed to an antenna and said, "Look, Daddy, a stick!"

 

I said, "Actually, that's an antenna."

 

"What's an antenna?"

 

"It's a stick, a silver stick."

My 4yr old boy asks me about what the towers do and I explain it to him the best I can that I understand and a 4yr old can comprehend. It is tough finding 14 different ways to say the same thing because his next question is always, "Why?"

Oh yeah, that's normal.

 

We'll be walking down the street sometimes holding hands, and I'll be looking at a building, and pointing out sites to her.

 

That's a Sprint site, you can see the radio heads on the back of the panels.

 

That appears to be a Clearwire site, you can see the little white dome which is for microwave.

The rest of my family tends to humor me, even occasionally pointing out cell sites on road trips. Then again, I'm the reason they're saving a fair chunk of change on cellular service...and still get LTE :)

I've only been a member of this site for a short time, and my wife is pretty much over the whole thing. All she keeps telling me now is, "I'm so sick of hearing about LTE this and LTE that." ...and, "I'll be so glad when you get that damn phone." :P

 

Needless to say...this site is addictive! And I'll never look at a cell tower the same again. ;)

I still can't recognize who is on any given site :( though at least I can spot them much better than before! That count for something right? :)

 

You know, I think I have a picture of you trying to recognize carriers on cell sites. Yeah, here it is...

    • Mine is still working fine here in Raleigh.   There were some outages related to the snow storm.    I have seen it take a couple of days to recover from storms.   It is not among the highest priority services.  
    • Looks like my MB gold at my office was finally decommissioned sometime last week. It was working the previous week and I was out of town last week. I came in today and it was powered down. I unplugged it and plugged it back in but it just keeps looping through trying to establish a connection. Looks like it's time to add it to our ewaste pile.
    • I did spot some NRCA in Crown Heights last weekend. Sadly because I'm using an iPhone I can't see the exact carrier combo but it did report that it was seeing 2 NR carriers. At first I thought it was a glitch or some weird stale data because my phone was still reporting NSA 5G and the primary NR carrier was the 80MHz n41 carrier but reading Sascha's article it's quite possible that my phone was using B2+B66 +n41+n41.  — — — — — On another note, it looks like someone found n5+n77+B2+B66 on Verizon:  Edit:  Two more confirmed locations of conversion sites:  T-Mobile eNB 875316 Location: 40.7314623618499, -73.82849493999701   T-Mobile eNB 875868 Location: 40.75304305996773, -73.85311593221213
    • This entire FAA argument is stupid with no evidence at all that there is an issue with C-band.  You may be right that there is some conspiracy nut involved. The guard-band between what aircraft altimeters use and cellular C-band is 220MHz.  If any safety critical aircraft altimeter is reading signals from 220MHz away from the frequencies it is designed to use, that is a very broken safety critical device and should have been replaced it long ago.  Everything in an aircraft is designed and certified for precision and is checked regularly.  The aircraft is not designated as airworthy for instrument flight if the systems in it are not certified to be precise and in good working order.  If an altimeter is so broken that it is off by more than 220MHz from the frequencies it is designed to use, it could just as easily be off by 1GHz or more which would likely cause it to fall into other frequencies that are also already in use. 
    • https://www.pcmag.com/news/exclusive-we-found-t-mobiles-secret-weapon-against-c-band Seems like he's seeing: B2+B66 +n41+n41 n71+n41 Not that it really matters, I suppose:
