How does one become a contributing author?  I use a lot of sites on a daily basis and feel like this site could benefit from some of the news surrounding sprint devices etc.  I follow something like 15 sites on a daily basis and I feel like I could contribute by giving a summary or something of some of the more interesting news.  I know we are not a site for "reposts" but I feel like the community at large here would benefit from some of the knowledge being passed about in other news sites.  Is this something that meets the S4GRU standards?  Would this be of any use to us as a community?  I would like just like to see more news articles from the wide world of sprint "stuff" here and wasn't sure if it fits Robert's vision.  I figured this section would make the most sense as it is not really categorized for any of the others.  I am not trying to flame or degrade the posts we do have on the front page, I just think some more relevant news on a more regular basis might be nice.  I mean I know everyone is busy and that's why the articles tend to be few and far between, but I am simply offering a suggestion and asking if it would be appropriate?

I would start with sending a PM to Robert to let him know what kinda topics you can share and potentially write an article for onThe Wall and see where it goes from there.  But basically the contributing author rank is for those that write articles on The Wall.

I would think a dedicated section for device reviews would be useful. I personally feel I can trust a review from someone here over someone at cnet when it comes to a critical look at the devices that come out. That way, someone knows when to avoid a dud such as the Evo LTE with its poor signal issue.

I was just thinking of writing a Surface RT review lol. Not directly related to Sprint, but I imagine most would be interested.

I am sure that Robert will eventually chime in, but for now, I will speak for the staff.  Many of us have not had time the past few months to the write the articles that we have roaming around our heads.  For that reason and many others, we warmly welcome contributions to The Wall that are relevant and interesting to our readership.  If you have an idea, run it by Robert first to get the go ahead.  Then, write the article.  If it is your first contribution, do expect a staff member -- probably me -- to copy edit your submission to ensure that it meets our standards.  Once it is published, you are conferred the Contributing Author title and privileges for the next six months.

Sorry for the delay guys. I echo AJ's post. And add that once you write three articles, you get the title S4GRU Contributing Author and if you are a long term member you can get access to post your own articles at that point. Also, after you become a S4GRU Contributing Author, you get access to the Staff forums.

    • 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.
