Why bother posting this in a public forum when you have to pay to gain access to this.

How will people know to become a sponsor if we don't tell them what benefit they get from it?

 

The threshold for becoming a sponsor is pretty darn low. http://s4gru.com/index.php?/page/index.html/_/announcements/s4gru-member-ranks-and-groups-r20

 

We are a not for profit site. The costs to run S4GRU are paid by our sponsor members. They even pay for the free content that people enjoy and all of our articles.

 

I don't think our requests for sponsorship is unreasonable.

I just don't see the value in the sponsorship to warrant it at this point. One map that I would probably look at and go 'meh'.

You should PM some of our sponsors and see if they feel they get a benefit from sponsorship. I have never had negative feedback from any of them. But you are the master of your wallet. I can respect that.

As the very first premier sponsor, I can attest that I did it just to contribute to the sites financial well being. No strings attached nor expected anything in return. I like the content that it gives, the professionalism by the members, both those that work in the field and those that don't. For those that know me from other sites, they know I don't have hair on my tongue and will speak out if a site is worth joining, contributing and or donating. It's refreshing to see a forum so well maintained and the dedication put into it by all. Of all the forums I've encountered or worked in, only two are like that. Androidforums and this one. The decision to place the maps in a sponsor only viewing section is mainly because of two things...

1-Give those that donate to the sites' upkeep, a benefit of seeing where the roll-outs are happening.

2-Any donation however small or large contributes to the sites' costs, since its a private site with no ads.

 

Eventually, I believe, the sponsor section will probably be increased to include other stuff.

Very funny guys! For a site that dangles all the benefits of a sponsor, they sure don't make it easy to figure out what you have to do to become one. Not even a FAQ? I'm happy to support the site, I just want to make sure I can get access to those NV maps.

You will have to pardon us. S4GRU has grown so fast and we are just not a well tuned machine for use by the mainstream. In many ways, we function like a club, and it can come off like a clique from someone on the outside looking in. We are experiencing some growing pains.

 

Sponsor sections were not created to get people to part with their money, but rather, we created these sections for our Sponsors who were so generous to support our site. All of the premium content for our site is in the Forum section. So, the PayPal donation section is there. If you click on The Forums tab, go up to the right hand corner of the page, you will see the PayPal donation area.

 

Thank you for considering a donation to S4GRU.

Here is some more information regarding being a sponsor http://s4gru.com/index.php?/page/index.html/_/announcements/s4gru-member-ranks-and-groups-r20

It took a couple visits to the site to figure out how to become a sponsor. I did not know merely donating was how you became a sponsor. I don't have any ideas on how to improve the process or how to make it easier to figure out, but I figured you would like an opinion on it.

 

Edit: You could possibly change your message above the donation box that reads

Please help support S4GRU with a PayPal donation.

 

 

To include that you become a sponsor by doing so. Just a thought.

Good suggestion. Will modify when I get home this evening.

I'm mobile myself at the moment. So I cannot harvest the link. I will try to do that this evening.

    • 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. 
    • More bizarre.  I just updated my other Ace without issue. - Trip  
    • Looking over the data so far, bidders can go back and reopen bidding on licenses that appeared settled. In the list below, not all counties are listed and only states with excess demand.  Typically 3 licenses per county for rural areas and some urban areas. Here is how many licenses per state had demand greater than supply: State count AK 3 AL 14 AR 3 AS 6 AZ 9 CA 12 CO 76 DE 6 FL 10 GA 66 GU 3 HI 3 IA 99 ID 47 IL 39 IN 43 KS 231 KY 23 LA 14 MA 5 MD 16 ME 1 MI 86 MN 9 MO 79 MP 12 MS 73 MT 69 NC 26 ND 109 NE 18 NH 13 NJ 6 NM 51 NV 24 NY 13 OH 29 OK 9 OR 30 PA 24 PR 25 SC 20 SD 83 TN 76 TX 236 UT 49 VA 22 VT 5 WA 65 WI 59 WV 26 WY 29
    • Looks like Dish has already taken back the 5x5 of n71 they leased to T-Mobile, and instead of narrowing NR here T-Mobile has gone for broke and made 600 NR-only. They can afford to do that here thanks to B12, and don't need to do that west of here because they weren't leasing 600 from Dish. Does mean that Dish is 10x10 for n71 here (which explains the 30ish Mbps upload peak I saw yesterday). Darned speculators hogging the remainder of the band So T-Mobile is running 140 + 15x15 MHz sub-6 NR here. AT&T is 40 + 15-45x15-45 (15x15 n5, occasional 15x15 DSS on n2 and/or n66 though I haven't seen both in the same area). VZW is 60 + 15x15, with the latter being n2 DSS. Wonder how soon VZW will try n48.
