Weird LTE showing up on sensorly…


Recommended Posts

I don't know if any of you have looked at sprint LTE on sensorly recently but the phantom LTE threat used to be in just North Dakota has spread to Montana and Wyoming. Any ideas what this actually is? Project cedar, rrpp, Verizon?

It's Verizon.  Most of the coverage shown in North Dakota has been there since Mid 2014.  I even totaled a car going up and checking it out last October.  There was no Sprint coverage present in any of the areas.  I checked using a Sprint device and a spectrum analyzer.  But the coverages did all line up with Verizon sites in the places I checked.  Someone has a modified Verizon device that is falsely reporting as Sprint when going through the Sensorly app, as best I can tell.

Aww...I was hoping it maybe was a sprint employee working on project cedar or something :/

Sensorly owes Robert a car in North Dakota.  And me a 14 hour day's pay in Oklahoma -- my standard rate is $70 per hour.

Yeah, I never thought about that.  I should ascribe blame to Sensory.  Yeah, that's the ticket!

Two conflicting thoughts here:

 

(a.)   I'm thoroughly impressed at the level of dedication demonstrated by the occurrence you reference above.

 

(b.)  That being said and at the same time....you simply can not open up and drop a bomb like that without elaborating.  I've got to hear the story behind that one (even if the details actually turn out to be a dud)!

Check the ND thread, pretty sure the details (maybe pictures?) are in there. Somewhere else as well, don't remember where it was posted.

To drop another bomb, Robert is actually an early 1980s black man.  Boom!

I love that song.  My mom used to play that song all the time when I was kid.  I like driving my kids nuts with it, now.  That, and Word Up.

Thanks Robert....yeah, not nearly as interesting as I was imagining possible in my head  ;) 

 

I actually had a former coworker when I worked for the state run a state van just barely off the road enough in a hilly/windy stretch with almost no curb/wiggle room that he lost control and flipped it down the side of the hill and totaled it (fortunately he came out of it with only bruises/scratches) - when I first read your comment my mind was hearkening back to that and wondering if it were a scenario where you were so engrossed in monitoring the results on your phone that you just momentarily had a similar 'Oops!' happen.

The wife and I often queue up the My80's station on iHeartRadio when on longer trips - everytime it happens to be played we go nuts with it.

 

Unfortunately my mom was never cool enough to listen to stuff like that....as a kid, *I* was subjected to George and Tammy and the like.  Maybe if I was lucky, some 50's doo-wop/American Grafitti type stuff.

I may be a middle aged white guy living in the Outer Midwest, but I love that genre of music. I grew up on that stuff. Raised in the military, which is very culturally integrated compared to the population at large, I was exposed to much more.

 

I was still living at home when my Dad retired from the Air Force and moved to Florida. I went to school and was amazed by all my new white friends who had never heard of Kool and the Gang, the Gap Band or anything like that. I would sing songs and they would look at me like I was from another planet. But it made it easier for me to become friends with African Americans and Puerto Ricans. Rural Florida in the 1980's. Fun times!

(1.)  Kool and the Gang remains to this day one of the biggest musical mysteries of all time to me - they were hugely popular for a fair stretch, and then they seemed to suddenly drop off the face of the planet and were getting no airplay except the established classic hits.

 

(2.)  The biggest example of all where I grew up, though they didn't have the longevity of a Kool and the Gang, was Midnight Star.  The album with Freakazoid and No Parking On The Dance Floor was *INSANELY* popular when I was in junior high.  To the point that being able to find a tape (yeah, it was in either the pre-CD or very very very early beginnings of the CD era) of that album was rare, and if you had it it was like you could fart gold and rainbows and people would love you.
