This isn't you is it?  Just joshin' ya.

 

Holy smokes, I have to commend that individual on having the guts to ask that question and claim they're an engineer... or maybe they are an engineer, a really really bad engineer. Or maybe it was a joke? "I would gain distance (like 22 miles)" lmao.

my cousin asked me and i was sure.

 

so wifi uses 2.5 ghz, and sprint is using 2.5 ghz for lte. What keeps it from causing interference from another. or causing congestion 

 

To give a short answer, Wifi actually uses unlicensed 2.4ghz spectrum, which anything from Bluetooth to microwaves also use. Sprints spectrum is 2.5ghz and is licensed (to Sprint), meaning only Sprint can broadcast on it.

I would not be surprised if the person really is an "engineer."  Increasingly, titles and labels are worth little credence.

 

In my day job in continuing ed, I routinely see people of marginal competence trudging through college or even aspiring to grad school, not really caring about learning, just focused on getting the degree, as if it were some sort of job certificate.  I hope that those people pick up some higher learning and critical thinking -- if only via forced osmosis -- along the way.  I do what little I can to instill those values.  But many in our society probably would be better served by a stronger system of vocational education, not college education.

 

In this country, learning for the sake of learning is virtually dead.  And that is sad.

Business says that learning for the sake of learning is dead.  Business has taken over education and made it more of a churn and done environment.  I know because my chance for research at my soon to be alma mater just destroyed the graduate department for my major.

Meh, some schools are better at turning out competent problem-solvers who can produce reasonably good work on a reasonably good schedule (and this apparently pleasantly surprises their employers).

 

And yes, as a relatively recent grad who could give a list of names of people who I would actually want to work with from the ranks of those who I had classes with, I might be biased in this.

Is this is a plug for Colorado School of Mines, the alma mater?

Something like that.

 

I will say that some departments send out grads with skill sets quite attuned to the industries they're going into (Petroleum, Geological, Mining, ChemE, EE, MechE), potentially at the expense of learning for its own sake. But there are majors who are somehow really enthused about the whole learning bit (ahem, Engineering Physics) as a whole, and there are of course examples of those types across the board. Folks too far out of that vein, or who aren't cut out for the particular fields that Mines caters to, tend to wash out to other schools in a year or two.

 

I will say this though...it ain't a degree mill.

 

EDIT: Personally, I could be doing exactly what I'm doing now, except not nearly as well, without the time I spent at Mines. I was there to learn how to solve problems better, though at times coursework was such that I didn't feel like I was heading toward that goal. So my goals going in color my perception of my experience significantly.

I have great respect for Colorado School of Mines, among many other science and engineering schools (e.g. MIT, Caltech, Rensselaer, Harvey Mudd, Missouri S&T, etc.).

 

The large state research universities are the ones that draw my greatest concern.  In many ways, those schools function like massive liberal arts colleges, but so many students are not interested in liberal arts.  They want nothing more than job skills that could be better delivered in community colleges and vocational-technical schools.

Agreed on that. The question is whether "the system" is okay with would-be students realizing this, and electing to do something useful in two years rather than racking up debt and pressing pause on the grow-up button for four(ish) years. Without getting too political, I've heard the current administration mouth words in favor of community colleges et al, but not quite as the potentially disruptive force to "mainstream education" that they could be.

I have a buddy who's Dad teaches at Mines. He's a Geologist. A Geologist in the Colorado School of Mines. Shocking, I know.

Last name? If I don't know him, I'm sure a friend or two of mine would.

Jerry Higgins.  He is my friend Scott's Dad.

    • 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.
