800 on 1900 spacing?


Recommended Posts

Okay I know that this will be great for in building coverage but one question, with 1900 spacing I was wondering how much the downtilt would have to be to not cause interference... I ask this question because on the way to work ( I work outside of sprints coverage) I get 800 signal all over my town now been weeks since I've even seen signal check say anything different. But back to my question, on my drive to work I will see my dBm drop from -62 to roaminging in literally 1/2 mile (headed straight south of the cell site nothin to disrupt signal), and this is an area where I'd even have 1900 coverage. I know these towers may still be testing but anyone seeing what I'm seeing?

 

- would the downtilt of 800 on 1900 spacing, cause no real coverage increase just better inbuilding penetration?

Downtilt can be adjusted for each separate antenna element. So, you can have more downtilt on 800 than 1900. Even with downtilt, you still have 800's advantages of matter penetration, and propgation will be better. And severe downtilt is only used in very urban areas, where site density should be enough for it not to matter as much. Should.

Has 800 greatly increased your coverage footprint on your way to work?

No see that's the thing my coverage is almost exactly the same the only difference is I have more bars when in sprints area. Its almost like they can't use 800 to its full potential because of interfereance maybe with other sites? This happens every day I go from full bars to no bars in a half mile. Coverage cuts off about the same place it did before too.

Your network is still in testing phase.  Or it has been configured incorrectly.  Plenty of us use CDMA1X 800 for miles and miles through other cells that have not yet had CDMA1X 800 lit up.

We only have one CDMA 800 site live in our area now, but it is traveling 15-20 miles!!! It is broadcasting over 5 PCS sites in one direction. Just amazing.

I also have been impressed with the extreme distance of 800smr 1x. More than I expected.

That's good news for me in Pahrump. :) Great signal in my house for voice would really make things great.

Can "good news" and "Pahrump" be used together in the same sentence?

 

:P

As far as I know, yes. I ignore the existence of those 'things' that make Pahrump famous.

    • 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
