Sounds waves, just like electromagnetic waves, are subject to the inverse square law.  Plus, we have that whole non smooth, curved Earth thing going on.  Yeah, I really do not want to calculate the 125 Hz longitudinal wave path loss between here and Michigan.  Let us just say that it is massive -- something on the order of T-Mobile signal path loss.

Why not? Is the calculation... too hard for you? How loud would you have to yell for me to hear it? Loud enough to kill people around you?

I thought Verizon sold a bunch of them to ATT when it divested all of it's lower 700Mhz licenses as part of it's deal to acquire the AWS spectrum from the Spectrum Co? I know most of block A is owned by US Cell or other regionals, but I thought Verizon did have some and sold them to ATT.

 

No, from VZW, AT&T cherry picked only Lower 700 MHz B block licenses.  Actually, I would have to double check, but a few C block licenses might have been included, too.  But no A block licenses were in the mix.  AT&T has intentionally avoided the A block to this point to rationalize its boutique band 17.

Verizon did have some lower A block licenses, any idea who those went to?

    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — — The old permit expired for this site without any work being done but a new permit was just approved a few days ago for a T-Mobile site at this address. Description mentions 3 antennas with 2 RRUs per sector. My guess is they're doing something similar to what they did at 360 Furman St in Brooklyn where they broadcast Band 2/66 and n25/41 from one antenna. It's a bit of a downgrade considering the site it's replacing was a full build with Ericsson 6449s. 
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
