I don't think you'll be able to see any cabinets or shacks though

 

Yes that is a Sprint and Clearwire colocated site. 

 

Sprints on top and old Clearwire on bottom.

 

The clearwire 2.5ghz equipment will be removed in the near future as it's redundant since Nokia has already installed their 8T8R 2.5 GHz equipment on the Sprint rack.

So does sprint use Clearwire's equipment at all? And does sprint only use cabinets or do they also use shacks sometimes as well?

Those not considered redundant yes. 

 

Vast majority are cabinets. Enclosed shacks contain the cabinets but they're generally used by ATT and VZW.

Also see commercial radio dipoles on that tower to. It is more then just a cell site.

    • 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
    • If you need any assistance, firmware or drivers with the radio; I am involved in Quectel's US based sales and field application engineer programs. I am working on the x62 reference RM520/N right now. They are a really fun product to work with.  
    • Thanks for the locations, I will try them sometime in the next week or so.
