Robert out into the Wilds on a Camping Expedition

Fellow S4GRU Geeks!  It is time for my annual Summer Family Camping trip.  We were planning to go back to the Black Hills of South Dakota, but because of a mandatory work meeting that I could not get out of, I have had to shorten our trip and stay closer to home.

 

I will be on vacation from Thursday evening, July 18th through Wednesday, July 24th.  I will be in and out of coverage the whole time.  So my availability will be hit and miss.

 

Also, the days before and after my vacation, my work schedule is very busy.  And I'm behind on PM's, emails and forum responses.  I am going to try to take a few hours every day to go through my backlog, but if I don't respond to you before I leave please be patient with me.  If you see others complaining, or wondering where I am, please link them to this post.

 

Since I will be within a few hours of Castle Rock, Colorado, I plan to stop by and check out some Samsung equipment and LTE goodness.  If they started deploying on sites further south the I-25 corridor, I would be ecstatic!

Have fun Robert! Funny thing, I'm taking a camping trip up to the Sequioa's this weekend with part of my church family, lol.

Have an awesome vacation, Robert! Given all you do, I almost feel guilty for going on vacation for the next two weeks, seeing as how I just got back from a weekend of hiking and visiting breweries in Southern Oregon...almost. ;)

 

Enjoy your time away. You deserve it! May you have a relaxing time, filled with much Samsung equipment and LTE goodness, but above all, don't forget to Sensorly map! :D

I sense a conspiracy.  Castle Rock, eh?  Charlie must be letting Robert camp on his estate and giving Robert free Dish Network for life in order to get S4GRU to stop maligning him.

Excellent timing, I plan on being on vacation right about the same time. Hopefully I'll be spending lots of time on this https://www.google.com/mapmaker?ll=47.003378,-95.064354&spn=0.030905,0.061197&z=14&q=Potato+Lake,+Hubbard,+MN&utm_source=mapseditbutton_normal&gw=30&lyt=large_map_v3

Man, I think this is the equivalent of making fun of my heritage. That's low: :hee:

Have a good (well-deserved) vacation! Make sure to turn on your Nexus 4 every once in awhile; 10x10 LTE (which is live in at least some parts of the Denver metro...personal experience) is fun while we wait for 20MHz TD :)

We have 10x10 in Albuquerque already. Blazin'!

We are doing final packing. I'm inspecting the camper trailer and we should be on the road in an hour or so. See you guys in a week! Thanks to all of you who work behind the scenes, in the forums and help to cover so I can take a vacation with my family.

Bump! Just a reminder to all that I'm on vacation. Received a couple of impatient PM's today.

We are camping at Spanish Peaks near Walsenburg and a really severe storm is bearing down on our little camper.  Let's see if this thing can hold!!!  http://www.weather.com/weather/alerts/localalerts/USCO0396?phenomena=TSG&significance=Y&areaid=COZ087&office=KPUB&etn=0000

    • Did my drive from PHX to SEA & got to experience the terribleness that is the totem lake area. Impressive, speed test didn't complete either time.
    • Weird that they'd go back to the Edge+. Would think they'd let folks use the S22 just like with Genesis. In other news, St. Louis has 10x10 n71 + n66 SDL live. A bit more info here:  
    • Wonder what other spectrum the auto industry can use, how much of the 5.9GHz was being used, and if 30MHz will be enough 20 or 30 years from now. The auto industry has had it for 20 years sure, but technology can move really slow.  It isn't good.  It isn't ready for real world applications. The hardware is too slow to be able to process enough reliable data. It is too expensive.  Etc. I would argue that we are just getting to the point where features that I would assume could use 5.9GHz are just now hitting mass market as the code is better, hardware is not only significantly faster but also cheaper. The baseline trim models still lack a lot of safety features but the next trim up usually comes with a bunch of goodies I'd assume could make use of 5.9GHz. Just imagine where we were in 2005, 2010, 2015.  Mostly just assumptions without enough knowledge of the spectrum use, so a hint of skepticism. With the what, 1.2GHz that opened up in the 6GHz range, getting 45MHz out of 5.9GHz is very meh.
    • 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.
