Sprint SMR Spectrum holdings...


Recommended Posts

817/861mhz would be where the 1xAdvanced would be placed... wonder why that might be missing from the list, seems also this map shows Sprint having the spectrum thru all the SouthernLinc areas too.

The blog notes this:

 

"The SMR and EBS/BRS spectrum is a bit messy – the spectrum licenses I download don’t correspond to the ULS, so there are mismatches and somewhat clumsy records."

 

So that could explain it.

It may be that he is working through the kinks of his new method. The previous way he would update the maps got borked, and he now has to comb threw the data manually. 

 
 
 
here is a link to the blog post explaining his new method.

This has been updated to include sprints SMR licenses and the BRS, seems in most places Sprint only has 12mhz?  That's not enough for a 5x5 and 1xAdvanced is it?  Unless the data is incorrect.

 

Thoughts?

I love what Anthony is doing.  He is obviously very talented in coding methods to pull data automatically.  But his data is not hand massaged, is not always accurate -- especially pertaining to partitions and disaggregations.  I have long advised people to use his maps only as thumbnail sketches.

 

In this case, the FCC ULS is at fault.  SMR 800 MHz is in disarray during the Public Safety rebanding process.  For now, the ULS indicates that Sprint holds the rebanded SMR X block 12 MHz license:  818-824 MHz x 863-869 MHz.  However, across most of the country, Sprint controls an additional 1 MHz below both the uplink and downlink for the following total:  817-824 MHz x 862-869 MHz.

 

In short, that is 7 MHz FDD -- sufficient for one CDMA1X carrier, one LTE 5 MHz FDD carrier, and guard bands.

Why does the map when you filter under SMR 800 (806-824) show that Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Tucson and San Antonio do not have any SMR licenses?  Since the author pulls these records from the FCC, is this just an error with the FCC's documentation?

In the FCC ULS, SMR 800 MHz is separated into several different service codes.  Only one those service codes, YH, is for rebanded SMR 800 MHz spectrum.  That is the data that Anthony pulled down.  If no rebanded licenses have been issued, then his data does not reflect that Sprint holds unrebanded YC/YF/YG service code spectrum that will be converted to YC in due time.

 

Eric, since you are in LA, this is for you...

That is only one of many, but proof that Sprint still holds active SMR 800 MHz licenses in those markets.

thanks for the link.  I didn't doubt that the So Cal area lost the 800 Mhz spectrum.  I was just curious why the map didn't reflect that it had 800 MHz in the southwest markets along CA, AZ and TX.

    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
