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...

    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
    • From a few days back: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/deutsche-telekom-aims-50-t-mobile-ownership-2024 DT Chief Executive Timotheus Hoettgas said buying the majority stake in T-Mobile US was the group's most important strategic project at present, according to Reuters. He said that stake should top 50% much sooner than its previous projection of 2024. Earlier this year, DT paid $2.4 billion to SoftBank Group to increase its stake in T-Mobile US to 48.4%.
    • 5.9GHz finally approved by a court: https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/court-upholds-fccs-decision-59-ghz.  This should be added to 5GHz wi-fi.  considering wi-fi 7 will be included in the qualcomm x70 and related SOCs, doubtful they will be able to add this now, unless designed to be added later.  5.9GHz will given us a third 160MHz unique carrier iirc, a major improvement.
    • waiting for about 400 with demand > supply, or 95% to look again in some detail.  Until then : https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
