Netmonitor and sprint NV towers.

I've been using the netmonitor app to see what towers I connect to. it's literally 100% accurate.. I'm wondering is it accurate for you?

The tower it says I connect to, is exactly where it is located.

Mostly, at least with Sprint, the coordinates shown are different than the actual tower. Depending on what sector you are connected to, the coordinates will display at some point in the general direction of coverage, anywhere from a few hundred feet to a few miles, perhaps, from the physical tower. Maybe NV is changing this and all sectors will report the physical tower location now?

The Ft Wayne market, like Chicago, broadcasts exact tower locations, the same for all 3 sectors. Others, Milwaukee for instance, broadcast offset locations per sector.

Note that even when accurate, NetMonitor only shows which 1x site you are connected to.  Not the 3G EVDO or LTE site.

sure it does click the address of the 1x site and it brings it up on google maps

I use both but I make sure I run Netmonitor since I can add notes to the logs like Sprint site ID and what not. Also, the sectors remain plotted on the map so I can go back and identify actual sector/site location after traveling. Once SignalCheck Pro can do something similar then I'll switch solely over to Mike's program. I do like the thorough signal data SCP provides.

I use both too.. however what irritates me about netmonitor and i had this problem before but for some reason.. and ive been in touch with the developer..but for some reason, as i map and log the sites.  the addresses shown are someplace in china, its right on the map.. but the address logged says its in china.. which makes it difficult to go to a list and say ok lets take a look at this one and this one. i have to litterally look at the map and then pick site to to site...

 

it was like that for a while, then an update fixed it, and the last two updates ive been having that problem.. again...

Not like netmonitor does. Maybe the developer of that app should add that :)

 

I think what you mean is that it doesnt log each site so you can reference each tower in reference to your location?? 

 

but it does show each tower on a map :D yes i know semantics lol i can be annoying like that lol

Have a tab on the app where it shows where you are and the tower is and shows you're connected to it :)

it has that lol

 

where it s says BSL: and the address 

 

click the address...

 

that will bring a google map... blue dot is your location  red dot tower location (you can then do all the google map things your used to like directions too etc

 

to be fair i didnt know thats what it did for a while lol i found it by accident

    • Almost at 76% licenses "sold" at $160 million. Like watching paint dry.  Will check again in a few days. 
    • I guess we'll see how many takers there are for this: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-08-04/dish-nears-launch-of-mobile-service-taking-on-at-t-and-verizon One early drawback to the Boost Infinite service is that, for now, subscribers will need to buy a $900 Motorola Edge+ phone to get connected to Dish’s new network. More phones that are compatible with the system are expected in the third quarter, Dish told analysts Wednesday. Registration Site: https://www.boostinfinite.com I remember when Virgin Mobile went iPhone-only: https://techcrunch.com/2017/06/21/virgin-mobile-goes-iphone-only-offers-a-year-of-service-for-1/ That didn't go so well.
    • Hey Mike    Ya I was the one that brought the issue to your attn for the color thing on my 6T like 3-4 years ago   that was fixed after like 6 months  and I never had any issues with that anymore till the 1st  Android/OxygenOS 12 update but it hasn't done that anymore (that i've seen lately)   it just doesn't give me the  signal strength much anymore  it'll show it for like 5 mins then  switch to  "--"  and stay that way  Sometimes if I close it out and reopen it  it'll come back (tho the icon is delayed showing up for like a min  or so when it used to show up instantly) but after a few mins it's back to showing "--" again and other times it'll just come back to the "--"
    • Sounds like an awesome project—keep us posted on how it’s going! Also—if you’re able to figure out logging, I can work with you to get the data uploaded to SignalCheck. 
    • Yesterday, I saw a post on Facebook from an old friend about the Evolve III Maestro, a $60 laptop (at Micro Center) that apparently has an LTE modem in it.  Specifically, the Quectel EC25-AF*.  The nearest Micro Center was sold out of new ones, but offered open box at $48.  So for $51 after tax, I walked out this morning with one.  An absolute steal. I backed up the Windows product key and then put Kubuntu 22.04 on it.  I spent a lot of time today trying to get the build tools installed so I could get the wifi module installed and running, and once I did that, I pretty quickly got to sending it modem commands, which I've never done before.  I don't have a SIM in it yet, but it does seem to function as it should.  (I figured out the command to get Timing Advance values out of it, but without a SIM, I doubt it would have such values.) Now I'm trying to puzzle out how to write some kind of script or small program to use it for logging purposes.  I think I've worked out how to send commands to it from bash using socat, but I need to pick specific commands to run.  I'd actually like to replace some of my phones with this if I can get it to record cells, with GPS, and cycle through a set of bands repeatedly.  My current phone collection consists of 9 phones other than my main S21FE, and they require babysitting while I'm logging.  It'd be nice to pare that down to a more reasonable number and let the computer do the work, hopefully in the back seat with less babysitting. - Trip ===== * Per the spec sheet, it supports B2/4/5/12/13/14/66/71.  That'd cover all of Verizon and US Cellular LTE, all but B29/30 on AT&T, and all but B41 and Sprint Keep on B26 for T-Mobile.
