Light Structure Sites


Recommended Posts

There's a Sprint 3G site at a park about 5 miles or so from me. LTE became live in the nearby areas of this site, but no LTE at this site. I've also noticed no further than 500 ft, there were antennas on a light post which was located on the walkway outside of the park fence.

 

As for this tall light structure, I'm pretty sure many here seen something like this before, and some may not. How does a structure like this work, and do the antennas play a role?

I am a little confused by the question; but i'll take a stab at it.  The "stealth site" pictured is most likely only for a very condensed area such as the park & neighborhood in the background.  The painted antennas are on a different light post you say?

If they cannot fit the RRU, they will ground mount them. This site will get LTE. Locate the cabinet and see if any work has been done. There is a park 1 mile from my house, they replaced new antennas on the light structure but RRU was mounted next to the cabinet. It is not stealth so I guess it varies from city to city. If the city wanted it stealth, then Sprint would make it stealth to get it approved. I guess it is cheaper if not stealth.

Yes the antennas are on a different light post. If you look at pic #6 in the pic, its located behind the try on the left on the other side of the fence.

Makes sense. I seen 2 cabinets along the walkway, and nothing was there to show work being done.

Check this one out in south east San Diego. It is on a light structure in a park and if they wanted it stealth they can just cover it up.  Most likely the people in the neighborhood won't be complaining.  This site is NV completed but probably waiting on fiber before LTE goes live.

 

Ground mounted site because RRU probably couldn't be mounted.

This is starting to become much more common.  I'm starting to see omnidirectional antennas on top of telephone polls in my neighborhood.  They are very stealth looking.

 

I'll snap some pics later and share.

    • I found some automated crash reports from a Motorola Ace.. not sure if they were from you or not, but they are bizarre. The error is a security exception claiming "insufficient location permissions" but the triggering code is the block that runs once location permissions are granted. 🤷‍♂️ EDIT: I'm guessing they are from you. The timestamps were from 5-10 minutes before your post, and it's on two identical devices.
    • Looks like T-Mobile just got an opportunity to expand n41 in Shentel-land https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/shentel-sell-its-25-ghz-spectrum-assets
    • 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.

    • 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 "--"
